Who we are...

The Geneva Theatre Boosters organization was formed in the Fall of 2011 by a group of dedicated parents. Their goal was to find ways to support students involved in theatrical productions at Geneva High School, located in Geneva, Illinois. This included students on the stage and working behind it.

Thanks to their efforts and those of countless other individuals, the organization became a registered 501c3 charity in June of 2013.

Our mission is to....

Promote and support theatrical events at Geneva High School

and

help foster a supportive culture behind our talented youth.

=========================

How we help...

Geneva High School stages four theatrical productions during each school year. These include a Fall play, a Spring musical, Student Directed One Acts and Viking Review. The first two productions are typically the largest, often having a dozen or more cast members.

The musical staged in the Spring of 2013 had 51 people in the cast, 15 people working Tech Crew, a Stage Manager, Tech Director and 23 musicians and one conductor who shall remain anonymous except his initials are P. Frederick. This picture would not be complete without mentioning the Choreographer Tracy Adams and Director Roxanne Curtis. If you're keeping count and my math is correct, that's 92 people! All of them are focused on putting on the the best production they can!

The Geneva Theatre Boosters support these productions in a number of ways. We:

    Sell advertising (and old seats) to raise funds.
Organize content for and fund the Playbills.
Create banners to help advertize.
Distribute posters to area merchants announcing each production.
Sell tickets during school lunch and before each show.
Create T-Shirts and buttons for the Tech Crew.
        Decorate the area around the auditorium entrance.
Sell "Shout Outs" for each of the productions.
Help purchase props and needed equipment.
Provide ushers.
Provide Cast Appreciation gifts prior to each opening night.
Purchase and sell snacks and drinks during each production.

=========================

How you can help...

The Geneva Theatre Boosters are proud of the fact that we've been able to increase our support for theatrical productions each year. Our efforts are greatly appreciated by the cast and crew. But in order to continue this tradition, we need your help.

There are so many things that we would like to do, to further support stage work at Geneva High School. We have an amazing group of very talented students. Some often discover their love of the stage, during their high school years. Whether their taking part in a comedic skit or adding their voice to a chorus of characters, the stage becomes their world. And we get to go along for the ride.

If you would like to join the Geneva Theatre Boosters, we would love to have you. Or if you can help with just one activity for one production, it can go a long way to helping us fulfill our mission.
