The After School Arts Program in Washington, which serves northwestern Connecticut, has been busy with its Inter-District Project, a play.
Students from four towns, Bridgewater, Roxbury, Washington and Woodbury, participated on the project over the past month.
The participants collaborated on the play and helped to build the sets and contribute to the costumes.
Emily Hubelbank, a New York City actress and playwright, led the project and provided direction for the show, “The Land of Dreams.”
The crew consisted of Summer Kucky (costumes), Emily Taylor (stage manager, sound and set design), Ian Bowman (set design), Elijah Ducey and Julia McCabe (lighting), and Tegan Anderson (stage hand), Wilson King, Wyatt King, Bailey Pote and Bridget Snyder (stage hand).
The Inter-District Project was made possible by grants from The Watts Fund ($4,500) and Region 12 District ($15,000).
Region 12 towns Bridgewater, Roxbury and Washington ($13,500) were also awarded to ASAP to help support after-school programming for Region 12 students.
Other Grants like The Jean and Julien Levy Foundation for the Arts help fund field trips, artist fees and special projects.
