The $5,000 will help fund “Ring of Kerry” and a production of “Peter Pan.” Ring of Kerry is an Irish dance group that will perform at SST in February 2022. SST was forced to postpone their production of “Peter Pan,” but with this donation the play will fly in July 2022. NUAF Director John Illikman said this donations matches the foundation’s four pillars: art, education, economics and history. The theatrical productions covered the arts. The production provides educations for young actors. The productions will bring in revenue, impacting local economics. SST is on the historic register and continued productions help preserve the building for future generations.
