LA SummerFest is getting a new stage and you can help name it! The Santa Clarita Shakespeare Festival has received a grant from the City of Santa Clarita to assist in securing a new stage for the growing festival. It will be a temporary and portable stage, from STEELDECK risers, an industry standard, and will be set up each year for the festival. The new stage is expected to last for the next 5 years or so until a more permanent performance space is built. The grant will cover about half the cost of the new stage and the festival must raise the matching funds needed.
“We are looking for select local companies to sponsor the matching costs of the festival stage,” said David Stears, Executive Director of the SCSF and the festival’s producer. “We are looking to name the festival stage for one of our sponsors.”
The LA SummerFest is a summer cultural festival presented annually at the Rivendale site in Towsley Canyon. This year’s festival includes: Shakespeare’s Cymbeline, an Americana/Folk Music Festival, performances of the musical Cabaret, a Blues Celebration, a night of free Praise music, a Night at the Opera, and a performance by the SCV Concert Band. This is the fifth year for Shakespeare in the Park at Rivendale and the second year for the newly expanded festival.
The festival opens July 5 and run through August 10. Companies interested in sponsorships for the festival should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
