Beginning late July 2015, I began volunteering with the Historic Elitch Theatre.
“The Historic Elitch Gardens Theatre was built in 1890, the theatre has been described as “one of the cradles of American drama.” The stage has hosted such stars as Grace Kelly, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., Cybil Shepard, Vincent Price, and many more.
The theatre was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, and locally landmarked by the City of Denver in 1995. In 1990, a 100-year anniversary production was held, the last performance given on stage. The City of Denver’s Office of Economic Development awarded the Elitch Theatre a grant for $425,000 to restore the interior. A generous gift to celebrate 120 years! Those funds were used to initiate the first phase of interior renovation.”
The Theatre was looking for help on their marketing and business development committees. I have since been helping with social media management (mainly Facebook), project management, and supporting events (New Works Festival and Indoor Classic Film Series). For their upcoming Art of Wine Fundraiser, I developed a 3-month social media campaign for driving traffic for ticket sales.
Additional work includes assisting with project management of the website redesign, being done by Fire Ant Studio. Other marketing volunteer work as needed, including photography, copyediting, writing, and project consultation.
