Final curtain call: Last week to secure your seat

The American Southwest Theatre Company (ASTC) is wrapping up its 2024-25 Seat of Honor fundraising campaign, marking its 40th anniversary.

This campaign aims to support theatre students and the NMSU Theatre Department by selling seats in the Mark and Stephanie Medoff Theatre at New Mexico State University.

Individuals and businesses can purchase seats for $500 and $750.

ASTC's efforts coincide with the closing week of "The Addams Family" play, adding a celebratory atmosphere to the fundraising drive.

ASTC generously donated $3,000 to support the student-run orchestra for The Addams Family play. Additionally, they awarded a $1,000 scholarship to select graduates, igniting their professional journeys with a promising start.

Last week, NMSU Theater officials announced that ticket sales for The Addams Family musical were nearing a sell-out.

NMSU Theater officials say this production marks the grandest spectacle in four years, with each meticulous detail, including one costume costing over $700.

As the curtains draw to a close on this season's performances, you can seize the opportunity to witness the captivating finale.

Funds raised will directly benefit theatre students through scholarships and educational opportunities.
