Build the Backyard

As you may know, when the Mickee Faust Club isn’t busy writing, rehearsing, and producing the four major theatrical productions a year, our facility serves as a meeting space and a performance venue for other not-for-profit organizations in our community. Our facility is located in RailRoad Square, and is comprised of a black box style theater for intimate productions, and a large, airy warehouse main stage for larger shows. Running the expanse along the length of it all is a hidden gem of a backyard space.

Our goal this year was pretty modest: make the backyard facilities functional for performance and accessible to all the cast and audience. Over a quarter of our all-volunteer cast and company have a disability that made navigating the previous backyard space at best awkward, and at times, even treacherous.

So, a group of more than thirty volunteers have worked this winter to clear, level, and set up an awesome backyard performance area! Currently we have built a large outdoor stage platform, refurbished a bar to function as a refreshment area, newly hung outdoor lighting, added a couple of glass-topped patio tables to function as a gate for ticket sales, moved the entrance to the yard, and added a festive new "yellow cheese road" to help us be more visible from the street, and assembled and painted half a dozen or so picnic tables so you can dine al fresco from the food trucks as you bask in the beautiful music from Eclectic Acoustic before each show.

We are so proud of the new space, but have done everything that sweat equity and our meager funds can afford. So we are reaching out to our community to support us in completing this project. We are SO close to the end of our vision, we can almost taste it!
