00 News & Updates, 2019 "Stage"

“Stage”, A celebration of the performing arts closes

Stage, a fundraising event to support the performing arts at the Pella Community Center, was an eclectic selection of favorite musical and dramatic performances. An estimated 450+ audience members in a short run of two performances were treated to the impressive vocal, dance, and acting talents of the performers as well as creative costuming, projected imagery and more.

As usual, the community humbled all of us at Union Street Players with their generous support. Additionally, as usual, our all-volunteer cast and crew put in everything they had to create a memorable experience for everyone involved. A special thanks to all who helped make this event possible and to all who help ensure the performing arts remain in our community into the future.
