Westy Self Storage of Wilton, Conn., has donated free use of a storage unit to the Wilton Children’s Theater (WCT), which produces four plays each year. The group will use the space to build the set for its upcoming production of “The Wizard of Oz,” to be performed Nov. 20-22, according to the source.
“Westy solved a major obstacle for us by providing us with a place to create platforms and pieces for our set. We couldn’t ask for a more clean, secure location,” said Jessica Carney DeLuca, the theater’s chair.
The play will include 55 children. “We also have a very dedicated team of professionals and parents ready to build a wonderful set,” DeLuca said.
“We are pleased to extend our storage space for such a deserving cause,” added Shawn Thompson, assistant district director of Westy’s Wilton property.
Founded in 1976 with the support of the Wilton Playshop, WCT is an independent, not-for-profit 501c3 organization that helps children develop acting skills, stage presence and self-esteem. Founded in 1990, Westy Self Storage is headquartered in Stamford, Conn. It operates four facilities in Connecticut, three in New Jersey and seven in New York.
