Wizard of Oz Cast

Donating to SPACE

Supporting the arts takes more than good intentions. It takes planning.

Since its inception in 2005, the Southport Performing Arts Conservatory has stayed true to its original mission of providing incomparable training in music and dance. In the last few years we have added theater arts to our platform and we are proud to provide professional training in a professional environment with a professional staff and facilities.

Year in and year out, SPACE schedules classes, workshops and summer arts camps, all of which provide our students with an unsurpassed level of training and performance opportunities. We continually challenge our students to be the best they can be and are rewarded with young performers that show unparalleled dedication and discipline. Whether the challenge is to fly high in professional flight rigging when performing last years’ full and un-cut versions of “Cinderella, The Wizard of Oz and Peter Pan,” to sharing the stage with members of the legendary Moscow Ballet, to performing before an audience, our students have continued to show they are capable of amazing things.

Unfortunately, all of this takes money and class fees and ticket prices only cover a fraction of the cost of operating a quality arts organization.

SPACE students, parents and alumni agree: While artistic talent and ambition are common characteristics of our students, it is the unique sense of partnership between all those involved in SPACE’s vibrant and diverse community that sets the conservatory apart. With the support of families, friends and neighbors, SPACE has created an environment that nurtures aspiring artists at the highest level of achievement.

When you give to SPACE, you are granting students access to an extraordinary future and your generous gift enables emerging artists to experience transformational arts training and unique programs.

Recurring Gifts offer you the opportunity to easily make regular and affordable gifts to SPACE over time rather than making a single, larger gift.

Honor and Memorial Gifts: An honor or memorial gift is a meaningful way to make a tribute to someone you admire. Gifts can be made to SPACE to honor friends and family members on special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, retirements and other memorable events. Gifts in memory of loved ones who were touched by the arts can help continue the tradition of exceptional performing arts. Your honoree or their family will be informed of your memorial gift.
