Walking the Tightrope in Palm Desert!
It's been so great being back at the beautiful McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert, bringing Walking the Tightrope to audiences of 1200+ students twice/day. We had such a great experience here last summer. The staff and crew couldn't have been more gracious and the house was packed. Love this place!
We're proud to have added our autographs to the backstage wall near Bob Hope's.
The McCallum also has a healthy arts education program that involves their teachers, donors and students all enjoying the same performances! Here's a note and photo from their Facebook page:
Special thanks to Bank of America for their continuing support of the McCallum Theatre Institute. This morning, a few of their top executives stopped by to interact with the children and watch a performance of "Walking the Tightrope," an Aesthetic Education Program focus work.
Pictured here are children from Rancho Mirage Elementary School and their Principal Marsha Boring, along with Bank of America executives Diane Valenzuela, Brent Sawrie, Michael Brown, Mark Messenger and Al Arguello who presented a $25,000 check in support of the education programs of the McCallum Theatre Institute to Kajsa Thuresson-Frary, Director of Education and Donna MacMillan, a member of the McCallum Theatre Board of Trustees.
