With the Driveway Theatre Project (DTP), we’re bringing a new kind of block party to neighborhoods throughout Greater Gainesville!
The way it works is simple: UFPA teams up with community members like you to bring together friends and neighbors around a performance in driveways, backyards, community centers, and even places of business. You provide the space and invite the people, we provide the magic of performance. Whether it’s bringing actors, musicians, dancers, or all three, we will work with you to figure out the most appropriate performance type for your gathering.
The DTP will be an effort that meets people where they are both geographically and socially, providing performances at no cost and removing many of the boundaries that hinder folks from attending performances inside our venues.
But providing no cost performances and removing these boundaries is a serious undertaking, and to realize the full potential of DTP we will need your support.
How to Host
If you are interested in hosting a Driveway Theatre Project event, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to the list of potential hosts. A few things to know about hosting:
- There has been a tremendous response to the Driveway Theatre Project. We are still accepting applications for hosts, but ask for patience as we continue to grow this program.
- We need hosts from all over! To us, DTP will not be a success unless our performances reach out to every corner of Gainesville. We want to engage with our neighbors to the East, West, North, South, and even in surrounding communities.
- Host requirements are minimal. The beauty of DTP is that it can happen nearly anywhere. Hosts will be required to provide ample space for performers and audience, and minimal power for microphones and speakers. That’s it!
This “menu” of performances will continue to evolve as we develop DTP.
