“To have MOSS come together with Hopewell House to make this game-changing contribution to CFTC really shows the power of community, and specifically the commitment of the Hampel family in making a difference in the lives of Northern Virginians!” said Michael O’Dell, President of CFTC.
CHANTILLY, Va. (PRWEB) October 21, 2020
MOSS Building & Design is pleased to announce that its collaboration with the City of Fairfax Theatre Company (CFTC), to assist with the remodel of its new Scene Shop at Hopewell House, will be revealed to the public on Thursday, October 29, 2020.
Formerly used as a barn on Hopewell House property, the remodeled space was donated by the owners of the land to be used specifically for CFTC to store and construct its sets in advance of its productions, thereby minimizing the amount of time and labor spent putting up backdrops and props at the various locations where productions are held. Run entirely by volunteers, CFTC relies on public use space for its rehearsal and productions, and in the past had all its equipment, materials, costumes, and other related items stored at CFTC members’ homes.
“This year has been a challenge for so many people- and to have Jason Hampel and MOSS come together with Hopewell House to make this game-changing contribution to CFTC really shows the power of community, and specifically the commitment of the Hampel family in making a difference in the lives of Northern Virginians! We couldn’t be more thrilled to move forward and upward with our work due to the generosity of Jason, MOSS, and Hopewell House,” said Michael O’Dell, President of CFTC.
Jason Hampel, MOSS Building & Design Chairman of the Board, and his family have been involved with CFTC for many years and understand its impact on those involved with Northern Virginia community.
"CFTC has been a wonderful organization for my family to be involved with," said Jason. "The volunteers and families behind CFTC give so much of themselves to provide our community with incredible access to the arts. They have given our son and many other kids and adults a fun and supportive outlet to explore a love of theatre and build confidence. Helping CFTC with the Scene Shop is the best way that MOSS could support such a positive group of individuals in the Northern Virginia area."
With donated materials from other sources, MOSS Building & Design was able to provide the manpower necessary to do the following: demo interior partitions and frame a floor to provide storage, create a larger main double door entry for easier access, rework electrical to provide better lighting and outlets and to provide electrical for the HVAC system, insulate the main areas and finish the insides with plywood, insulate, drywall and paint the ceiling, and install a new HVAC system.
The Scene Shop will be officially unveiled to CFTC members and the general public on Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. at its location at Hopewell House, 5360 Winfield Road, Fairfax, Virginia. In addition, signage for the new space was provided by Allegra.
