To our valued Ignite! friends,

As many of you know, we have lost our lease on our theater space in the Spokane Valley Partners building. We need to completely vacate the space by the end of the month. To accomplish that the Board and some theater friends have spent the last month (and more) completely moving our theater into storage as we continue our quest to find a new theater home. We thought it appropriate to gather one last time at our home for the last eight years and take a photograph to mark the occasion of our departure. We would love to have not only the Board, but anyone who has taken part in a production, volunteered in any way, or has just been a loyal Ignite! patron there to be a part of it. We will be gathering in the theater at noon this Saturday to make it happen. If Ignite! has had a special place in your life we encourage you to spare a few minutes and help us make this very memorable!

Good-bye to a Dear Friend

Bob Gariepy, a longtime volunteer on stage, backstage, and in the lobby with Ignite passed away on October 19th.  He will always be a part of the Ignite! family. His love of and enthusiasm for live theater has always been an inspiration to our patrons and those of us who, by comparison to his incredible and wonderful experience, are just getting started. Theater requires passion, and Bob had always displayed and been willing to share that. It is impossible to adequately express our gratitude for his partnering with us in this sometimes crazy journey. We will always endeavor to live up to the excellence he encouraged us towards. Although it is much too small a word it is given with all our hearts - thank you and may you rest in peace.

To the Treasured Friends and Patrons of                         
Ignite! Community Theatre

We are honored and humbled to have been the beneficiaries of your loyalty and support over the last fifteen years!  And we are proud to have begun to be recognized as the theater of Spokane Valley.  For the last eight years we have been able to call our space in the Spokane Valley Partners Building home.  And thanks to your generous support we have been able to provide high quality live theater.  And we are weathering our current health crisis well enough to be anxious and excited to bring you that same wonderful live theater as soon as we can.

 

Unfortunately, situations change and we find ourselves facing an even more challenging future.  In the last few years Spokane Valley Partners has been growing in their programs and in their mission to provide support for the needy in our community.  Their growth will require more space and the only space available to them is the space Ignite! currently occupies.  So we have been informed we will need to vacate by June 30, 2021.  We are now forced to find a new home for Ignite!  As you can imagine, this news is overwhelming.  So we wanted to reach out to you, first of all, to let you know what our situation is.  And secondly, to ask you to consider any way in which you might be able to help us in our time of need.  We would appreciate any insights you might have on a potential property that might be appropriate for our relocation or any contacts you might have for us that would aid us in finding that place.  We have formed a search committee to begin this effort immediately so any input from you would be most welcome.  Also, we will certainly be in need of financial help.  This endeavor will not be easy or inexpensive.  Your support, as always, is appreciated.

 

We will keep you informed of any progress as it happens.  If you have any questions or comments please contact me at the email below.  Keep us in your thoughts.  As always, and in this time particularly, it takes a community to ignite a theater.  And we are so thankful that you have chosen to be a part of our community! 

 

Sincerely,

Dan Griffith

As we await the opportunity to open safely, the Ignite! Board of Directors would like you to consider the following:

The tragic death of George Floyd reminds us that we must, as individuals and as citizens of the United States, be part of the conversation for change of systemic racial inequality.  We at Ignite! Community Theatre would like to suggest the following as a start:   In October of 2015 we were proud to present in our Booklight Readers Theater the play To Kill a Mockingbird by Christopher Sergel based on the novel by Harper Lee.   We recommend that you read this excellent play or the Pulitzer Prize-winning book.  As a follow-up, watch the Academy Award-winning movie starring Gregory Peck. This story is an eloquent, powerful, and searing condemnation of what we, as a society, have too often accepted and taken for granted and is worth your review. We must do and be better.
