What We Do

The Baldwin-Whitehall Friends of the Theater Arts and those who have contributed to BWFTA have helped the theater programs in the Baldwin-Whitehall School District by raising funds for:

  • 10 wireless microphones and receivers
  • A projection cyclorama screen
  • 4 face microphones
  • Fog machine & hazer
  • Wireless microphones for J.E. Harrison Middle School's musical program
  • $30,000 donated to the school district for the auditorium renovation project

Over a number of years, these donations will have saved the theater programs thousands of dollars in rental fees.
