Arts are Important

Building Community

GOCAT is proposing a five-year plan to transform the site of the present Little Theater at OHS—which lacks adequate heating/air conditioning, appropriate equipment, and has dilapidated seating—into a 590-seat facility with state-of-the-art equipment and amenities. There will be additional spaces to provide a multitude of learning opportunities to district schools and other community organizations. Orange Unified District schools already have a history of sharing athletic venues.

The design will accommodate performances in theater, dance, choral music, instrumental concerts, recitals and more by students and other performing arts groups in the area. There will be a dedicated space in the foyer for students to display visual arts. Other artists could be showcased as well. Dressing rooms and other pertinent theater areas are planned. GOCAT hopes to also include theatrical fly space so that backgrounds, props, etc. can be manipulated seamlessly as needed. 
A group of citizen volunteers from our education, arts and business communities has formed a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization (Tax ID 82-2837360). It is dedicated to raising the necessary funds for this project. Your help is vital to the success. Your contribution to GOCAT in any amount will help make this dream come true. (Any contribution is tax-deductible to the full extent permitted by law.) 
This is your opportunity to become an active supporter of the arts in a very literal sense of the term. You can help create a legacy
