Setting the Stage at Kealing Middle School

Kealing Middle School’s Theatre teacher, Laurie Pena, approached Eastside Lumber and Decking for assistance on a project. The school-wide Spring Musical had big dreams for their staging and little budget. Eastside agreed to donate and deliver all the lumber needed to build out the performance space and complete a platform. After reviewing the drawings to look at the lumber takeoff, Randy called Burton Baldridge of Baldridge Architects to collaborate on redesigning the stage.

On Saturday January 12, volunteers from the Kealing community built the set. Forty 6th-8th grade students will be bringing Fame Jr. to life on their new stage February 1st-3rd.
