Help Us Expand the Auditorium Function of BPAC
Our auditorium the Bucksport Performing Art Center (BPAC) built in 2003, is an extraordinary base for which the arts can springboard for Bucksport and the surrounding areas. The joint venture of the Bucksport School Department, Town of Bucksport, and State of Maine has made the basic facility a reality. But now is the time for the supporters of BACAS to make this venue capable of providing a high quality cultural and performing arts environment.
BACAS thus far has raised $25,000 for air conditioning, and approximately $12,500 for the Grand Kawai Piano, and we have purchased and upgraded the lightening system in the auditorium. This is our need now to continue the upgrade of BPAC:
Sound Improvements - Enhance sound control, and wireless capabilities.
Grand Proscenium Valance - We would like to add a valance to be placed along the proscenium arch just behind the Grand Drape. This will provide a huge aesthetic improvement for all presentations by hiding the electrics, lighting fixtures, and the future central public address sound cluster from view. It seems like a small bit, but will make a dramatic improvement for any theatrical experience.
Supporters of BACAS have an opportunity to contribute to these improvements while obtaining a permanent commemorative of their gift. The following are the ways you may contribute:
$25.00 Permanent Roster of "Donors and Supporters" of the Cultural Arts Center
$100.00 Permanent Plaque Placed Prominently Inside the New Building
$250.00 Permanent Nameplate on Auditorium Seat
