BRING UP THE LIGHTS CAMPAIGN

As we emerge from the pandemic, the BSPAC board has the goal of continuing to be the venue where on-stage entertainment and education in the performing arts occurs in Borrego Springs. As we begin to plan for future performances, we are also focusing on the replacement of our 40-year old stage lighting system.  


  • The Front of House lights that are suspended over a portion of the audience cannot be adjusted without a scaffolding system and are therefore a safety hazard.  
  • The existing lights are incandescent and use a lot of electricity.  New lights are LED and consume much less power. There will be significant savings in electrical utility costs for BSPAC.  
  • New lighting will increase the available lighted stage space by 30%, which will accommodate larger groups and higher quality performers.


As we search for support from private and government sources of funding, we are once again asking for your support in this effort. Please consider a donation to the BSPAC as you are able.  BSPAC is integral factor in all of the things that make Borrego Springs a very special place.

COMMENTS FROM OUR USERS


George Keith, Artistic Director, Borrego Springs Performing Arts Center - “ As we consider improving  some of the aspects of BSPAC, I have been thinking about the importance of lighting as it applies to a film, musical, or play. Awards are given for “Best Lighting” because lighting is recognized as a significant part of any production.  Stage lighting communicates in a subtle manner, but its effects can be transformative.  It can take an ordinary production and make it ‘shine’ with appeal”


Jimmy Smith, The Outrageous Front Porch Revue, annual fundraiser for the Anza Borrego Foundation - “A town will rise no higher than the level of its arts, and the Borrego Springs Performing Arts Center is where that happens”


Anne Wesley and Mary Anne Luty, performers in the 2020 productions of ‘Twelve Angry Jurors’: - “Our first thespian experience brought so much more than we expected. Since we had never done theater we didn’t know what to expect. We had no idea of the challenges we would face or the rewards we would gain. We got so much more than we bargained for.  Fun, friendships, and the elusive promise of fame. What more could we have asked for?”


Fred Jee, Executive Director, the Borrego Springs Film Festival -  “New equipment is need to give this theater an exciting long term future.  The Borrego Springs Film Festival depends on our community theater for a world-class venue and a quality experience that showcases film makers talents, entertains audiences young and old, and brings outside visitors to Borrego Springs which is an important part of our local economy”.


Betsy Knakk Executive Director, Anza-Borrego Natural History Association - “The Borrego Springs Performing Arts Center has been the venue for the ABDNHA Desert Lecture Series for more than 20 years, providing an up-to-date setting for our expert speakers, many of whom come from out of town, and for our attendees, which greatly contributes to the success of the Desert Lecture Series”


Virginia Perrin, President, Community Concert Association - “The Community Concert Association has held our concerts at BSPAC since the early 90’s. We are fortunate to have this venue in our small community and appreciate the commitment of the board to maintain and improve the facility.”


Danielle Del Bono, long time student of the dance program and a former Miss Borrego: - “The Performing Arts Center dance program has been amazing for me.  Because of this program I found my passion for ballet dancing.  I was a student of dance from second grade until I graduated from high school.  I am so grateful that I could be a part of this awesome program and hope I can come back from college and dance with everyone again” 


Ben Nourse, Co-Owner, Borrego Outfitters - “Not only does BSPAC contribute to Borrego’s cultural community and provide a meaningful activity for its many enthusiastic participants, but it also is a great asset for visitors to our community.  We are lucky to have such a vibrant organization here”


 Tai, a current student of dance - “Learning different forms of dance has been awesome.  My favorite thing is dress rehearsal when we get to wear our costumes”
