CELLAR DOOR PROJECT HOSTS PWYC FAMILY FRIENDLY FUNDRAISER FOR “SEARCH PARTY” SUNDAY APRIL 14TH AT THE GRAD CLUB
Kingston, ON – On Sunday April 14th, local site-specific theatre creators Cellar Door Project (Mariah Horner, Taylor Norris, and Laura Chaignon) are hosting a fundraiser for their upcoming show, Search Party, programmed in foldA (festival of live digital art) this June.
On June 15th, part party-crawl, part digital scavenger hunt, Search Party is a three-hour, immersive experience guiding participants on an adventure through Kingston’s downtown, looking for a party they planned for themselves. Planning is already underway with Cellar Door Project artists gathering local knowledge and preferences from Kingston residents. To help plan the party, follow @ygksearchparty on instagram or join the FB group YGK Search Party.
In order to gather feedback about what kind of party Kingston residents want in June, Cellar Door Project is hosting a Fundraiser at the Grad Club on Sunday April 14 from 2-5PM. Earlier this year Cellar Door Project took an online poll to determine the theme and over 100 social media followers requested a Moonlanding Party. The event is pay what you can, with a suggested donation of $5 for kids and $10 for adults.
This Moonlanding Fundraiser is family friendly with programming for both adults and for kids. Cellar Door Project has invited staffmeal (Mike Dougall) from Secret Kingston Party to DJ, local artist Cristina Goncalves to perform children’s music and facilitate the collective writing of a party jingle, photographer Céline Klein to take photos, and facepainting for kids. The Grad Club will be serving moon based cocktails (with and without alcohol) for the occasion and Cellar Door Project will be hosting a variety of activities to crowdsource the perfect party.
ABOUT CELLAR DOOR PROJECT
The Cellar Door Project is a Kingston based site-specific theatre collective dedicated to animating community spaces through live performance. Founded in 2012 by a collective of Queen’s Students, Cellar Door Project has since created 14 original works in Kingston and Ottawa. Be it theatre, film, or installation, CDP reflects a community’s past and present back to them by telling their stories in the spaces they originally happened in. CDP wants to make work that is accessible in content, form, and costs for a diverse body of audience in Kingston and we believe the key lies in activating community spaces. So far, these spaces have included City Park, the cemetery at Queen and Montreal, the basement of City Hall, Brian’s Record Option, The Royal Tavern, the remains of an 19th century observatory, and the Diefenbunker. CDP has produced in first two Kick & Push Festivals, the NAC Canada Scene Festival and have been commissioned by CSArt Ottawa and the Ottawa Storytellers
