Dear Genesian Supporters,
Archbishop Rummel High School is investing in the Genesian Players like never before! With newly upgraded sound and video equipment, enhanced backstage capabilities, and an all-professional team of designers and directors, the students are benefitting from the program and the sold-out audiences have returned to the Genesian Theatre.
And now, we have one of the best opportunities the 59-year-old organization has ever experienced—the Genesian Players will present the high-flying Broadway version of “Peter Pan” at the state-of-the-art 1,000-seat Jefferson Performing Arts Center November 11-13, 2022!
The decision to go to the JPAC was three-fold—to accommodate the growing number of patrons who wish to see our productions, to grow the awareness and accessibility of the Genesians in Jefferson Parish, and to be able to fly our Peter and the Darling children onstage and over the audience.
However, to accomplish these lofty goals we need your help.
The costs to rent, ship, and train on the equipment for the flying effects is $9,000.00. These costs are above and beyond our standard royalty and licensing fees, as well as costumes and sets. And, while I’m sure you agree this is a terrific opportunity, we want to do it right and show off the Genesians in the best way possible.
I kindly request your consideration of a gift to help Peter Pan fly! For donations in excess of $1,000 we are happy to extend a package of tickets to our champagne night performance in box seats for you and/or your guests and clients, as well as playbill acknowledgement.
Thank you for considering a gift to the Genesian Players. Peter can’t fly without YOU!
With grateful appreciation and Raider Pride,
Brandt Blocker '90
Director of Theatre
