Jordine Von Wantoch with sponsored actor Phil Johnson
are often the most captivating aspect of any performance. For a few hours each night they portray characters who make us laugh and cry, and examine ourselves and the world around us. But most of us don’t think about the hours upon hours of rehearsal time spent to create these characters, to make them real. By supporting an Actor, you are helping Cygnet bring these wonderful storytellers to our stage.

Designers work behind-the-scenes bringing to life fantastic sets, costumes, lighting, sound, and more. In collaboration with the director and other designers, they help establish the tone and style of a production. Designers must be creative, as well as practical about what works best to serve the production and the vision of the director. Whether a design dazzles or perfectly blends in, the process takes time, thought, and expertise. By supporting a Designer, you are helping us maintain the high production value that you've come to expect on the Cygnet stage.
Stage Managers hold the most overlooked, yet critical position in the theatre. They are the glue that holds a production together. From overseeing rehearsals to managing designers, actors, crew etc., Stage Managers are deeply involved throughout the process, ultimately ensuring that every performance runs smoothly, both onstage and off. By supporting a Stage Manager, you are helping the entire production process run like a well-oiled machine.
