Our Mission: Strengthening Pagosa’s youth through the performing arts and volunteer adult mentorship.
This mission is translated into contributions to the community in a variety of ways.
Curtains Up Pagosa (formerly Music Boosters) turns all of its profit back to our schools and community through a give-back philosophy that includes scholarships, instruments, supplies, equipment and performing arts programs. Our primary ongoing financial support and responsibility is to our scholarship program, which supports selected college students majoring in one of the areas of the performing arts. We currently proudly support five students furthering their education in Colorado, New Mexico, and New York. Scholarship support is also provided to students attending camps, festivals and other music and performing arts related venues.
Since 1989, the organization has purchased and helped repair musical instruments for public schools, bought a Kurzweil keyboard, and donated funds toward the purchase of a Yamaha Conservatory grand piano for Pagosa Springs High School. The organization continues to purchase needed equipment for the high school auditorium such as microphones, line sets, a traveler, storage units and costume racks. Additionally, Curtains Up continues their mentorship of young performers through productions, apprenticeships, direction, choreography and coaching.
The Curtains Up organization believes in the power of performance, the magic of the theater, and the opportunities that await everyone who steps on stage. They have produced almost 50 shows. The most important elements of our productions are the people: the actors, the technicians, the crew, the musicians – of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels and what they create as they come together to learn, grow, give to one another, and to the community. Our shows reflect their ongoing performance education, their work, compassion, and desire to have FUN!!!
Curtains Up Pagosa is a non-profit, 501c-3 organization. We appreciate your financial support for our scholarship fund and our work in the schools and community. Donations are tax deductible.
