Karing Kapers, Inc.
Through the years, Karing Kapers has had the privilege of updating the DD Miller Auditorium for use by the Watertown High School school system and the community, as well as providing support for other local performing arts organizations. More than $338,000 has been raised to support the performing arts in our community. This, in a nutshell, is Karing Kapers’ mission.
By producing an annual professionally directed and produced follies-type show, members of our community, from the youngest to the more mature, can find their place in the spotlight. This family-friendly environment with song, dance and a large dose of laughter, pulls together our community to support the arts like no other.
Karing Kapers will light up the stage October 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2019 with our show, Kapers Cross Kountry! This year’s proceeds, in cooperation with Watertown High School, are designated for purchasing a digital lighting system for the DD Miller Auditorium. A digital system offers more energy efficient lighting and simpler modification of lighting scenes for stage productions. The total cost of this complete lighting system is anticipated to be nearly $30,000. Karing Kapers received a $10,000 grant from the Watertown Community Foundation to help with this project. Karing Kapers matched that grant with $10,000 from the proceeds of the 2017 show. Now we are hoping to complete the project with the proceeds from the 2019 show.
