Build Day at the Franklinton Playhouse – 11/17/2019

November 17, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Please join Columbus Gives Back as we help the Franklinton Playhouse prepare for their latest theater production. After the final show of their current production, we’ll help strike the set (take the set down), and help them prepare to move into their new location. In addition to set construction, volunteers may be asked to assist with other minor cleaning and organization tasks around the yoga studio and theater space.

What to Wear: Please wear closed-toed shoes and comfortable clothing that you do not mind getting a little dirty or covered in paint. While we will spend the majority of the time indoors, we may need to be outside briefly to move set pieces and props, so please dress comfortably for the weather.

What to Bring: If you have a drill or socket set, those tools are always helpful to bring along, otherwise just bring yourself.

Where: Franklinton Playhouse, 566 W Rich St, Columbus, OH 43215
Please use the entrance to the right of the garage door (look for the Art of Yoga sign)

When: 4:30 – 7:00 PM, November 17th (work shift)
2:00 PM (optional matinee for volunteers)

About Red Herring Productions at the Franklinton Playhouse: Red Herring Productions established the Franklinton Playhouse out of its commitment to community and its dedication to Franklinton development. An 8000-square foot warehouse was converted into an 80-seat theater and studio space that hosts yoga, pilates, and dance classes, and displays artwork from local artists. The Franklinton Playhouse serves as an incubator space for emerging performance artists with the intention of making Franklinton destination point, stimulating community growth and driving economic development in the surrounding neighborhood.

About Columbus Gives Back: We love Columbus, young professionals, and getting involved! Our mission is to connect young professionals across central Ohio and engage them in our communities through 35-40 social volunteer and philanthropic opportunities per month.

#SocialTwist: After the event, we encourage you to join us for food or drinks and have fun with other cool volunteers like you!

Cancellation Policy:  Due to the nature of our events, an accurate headcount is important.  Please contact one of the event coordinators if you have RSVP’ed but are unable to attend this event.
