Announcing a 5-Year Partnership with Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance

Thrown Stone is pleased to announce we’ve just partnered with Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance for the next five years.

Following our debut production of Milk at RCD, we were eager to return, and in our talks with Artistic Director Amy Piantaggini and Board Chairman Howard Turner, we discovered lots of ways to work together, not just next summer but over a longer term. So, for the next five years, Thrown Stone will have the option to perform summer productions at RCD and throughout that time, we will work with RCD to help realize the studio’s full potential as a performance venue. We’ll also help each other with marketing and outreach.

Show your love for the 06877

To celebrate our partnership, RCD and Thrown Stone have a special offer: Donate $100 or more to either group today, and you’ll get our limited edition car magnet, free while supplies last. It’s a great way to show your love for the 06877, and your support for world-class performing arts in the heart of Ridgefield!
