Open Space Arts announces the launch of their Cabaret Performance Space Campaign, aimed at creating a vibrant new chapter for the organization. The campaign seeks to raise funds for the installation of a Cabaret Room, a versatile performance space that will serve as a hub of creativity and a platform for transformative live performances.

At Open Space Arts, the power of performance to inspire, challenge, and unite is well understood. The addition of a Cabaret Performance Space will provide a flexible and intimate setting for artists to showcase their work, while offering audiences an immersive and impactful experience. From experimental theater to music recitals and community events, this dedicated space will be a catalyst for exploration, expression, and artistic growth.

The Cabaret Room stands out for its versatility, allowing for endless possibilities in staging, lighting, and seating arrangements. The close quarters of the space create a profound connection between performers and the audience, intensifying the emotional impact of each show. In addition to its artistic significance, the cabaret will also serve as a gathering place for art lovers, fostering a sense of community and belonging.

Contributions to the campaign will directly support the installation and design of a state-of-the-art cabaret room, complete with quality acoustics, lighting, and flexible staging. The funds raised will also go towards acquiring essential audio-visual equipment, ensuring comfortable and accessible seating for all audience members, and establishing a programming fund to support initial productions and community events in the new space.

Open Space Arts is currently offering a range of donation tiers, each with its own set of rewards and benefits. From a personal thank you on their website and social media to VIP access to select shows for a year, donors will have the opportunity to become an integral part of this transformative project.

If the initial funding goal is exceeded, the organization has set stretch goals to enhance the theater’s capabilities, including advanced soundproofing, a state-of-the-art lighting system, and the ability to attract top talent.

According to Donnell Taylor, Executive Director for Edutainment Productions at OSA, Open Space Arts will be hosting a series of vibrant events throughout the summer with the aim of garnering support. “We are seeking an extremely ambitious soft opening date of late September 2024 and a grand opening in early October 2024. This is a high bar to set, but we believe the OSA Cabaret project has the power to rally Prince William County residents towards the goal of enriching their community for generations to come,” said Donnell in a recent press release.

I.E. Luckey, Director of Talent Acquisition for Edutainment at OSA, further elaborated on the projected impact of the OSA Cabaret Project where it concerns artists, students, and technical specialists: “The opportunities in the performing arts industry our cabaret room will afford to our county of nearly half a million residents will be unparalleled. From scene designers to directors, to actors, producers, lighting professionals and more, we’ll be able to create a space where creativity and technical prowess come together to create powerful performances. Having something as dynamic as the OSA Cabaret Room will undoubtedly provide platforms for artists while stimulating economic growth through an uptick in inbound tourists,” he said in a recent interview.

Open Space Arts invites individuals and organizations to join them on this exciting journey. According to Open Space Arts, supporting the Cabaret Performance Space Campaign will help build a premier performance space, as well as create a home for the arts, a place where stories come alive, and a platform for voices to be heard.
