Open Access Builds
On the Saturdays leading up to Winter Pageant, November 16 - December 7, 12-2 pm each day, Redmoon opens its doors (2120 S. Jefferson Street) to the public for Open Access Builds, where community members of all ages build material and costumes and paint sets for Winter Pageant. Participants will be presented the opportunity to join Redmoon's "sewing circle," working with Redmoon's costume designer to sew and build costumes for the 40 performers, and will work with the scenic artists to paint large backdrops for the production. Open Access Builds participants then have a chance to come back to see their work in the production and will receive a "Friends of Redmoon" discount on their tickets.
