In South Carolina, A Landfill Landmark by Stan Friedman

This post comes to you from the Broadway Green Alliance

In a city named Greenville, one might expect its citizens to have a certain respect for the environment. But the team behind the Peace Center for the Performing Arts in Greenville, S.C. has taken the cause to a whole new level, becoming the first performing arts center in the country to generate zero landfill waste. The key to their success is a partnership with a local, family-run and environmentally friendly waste management company, WasteCo Inc. As explained in a recent Peace Center press release, the multi-step recycling process works like this:

All waste from the Peace Center is taken directly to VLS Recovery Services or Greenpointe Recycling Center. Once there, the material is sorted for recyclable material. The unsalvageable material is shredded and taken to a gasification site. The material is then fed into a gasifier, where the waste and oxygen create synthetic gas (syngas). This syngas can then be cleaned for any impurities and used for energy.

The program is especially impressive given that the Peace Center is no small outfit. Occupying a six acre downtown site where a textile plant and a mayonnaise factory once operated, the campus boasts seven different venues in addition to administrative and production offices. They draw more than 360,000 people a year and present over 600 events including, this season, the national tours of Newsies and Matilda the Musical. The Center generates some $25 million a year in economic activity.

Maureen Shallcross, VP of Operations for the Peace Center, spearheaded the zero waste effort, and found no resistance from any of the involved parties. Indeed, quite the opposite. “Eliminating the need for staff to sort was a value added,” she observed, and because WasteCo was their existing vendor, there was continuity on the service side of the equation. In addition to the zero waste success, Ms. Shallcross pointed to their other green initiatives which includes battery recycling and an annual electronics recycling program. Also, they have recently completed an ASHRAE Level III energy assessment and will use the results to plan short term and long term cost-effective energy conservation measures. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and an expansive website all play a part in getting the green word out to their audience, alongside mentions in the local media.

When asked if she had any planning suggestions for the Broadway community, Ms. Shallcross gave validity to the BGA’s methodology: “Find an individual within your organization with passion about sustainability and charge him/her with pulling together a green team across departments to ensure institutional commitment to a program.” Our Green Captains program falls right in line with this solid advice.

At the BGA, we recognize that it is impossible to be 100% “green” while continuing activity and – as there is no litmus test for green activity – we ask instead that our members commit to being greener and doing better each day. As climate change does not result from one large negative action, but rather from the cumulative effect of billions of small actions, progress comes from millions of us doing a bit better each day. To become a member of the Broadway Green Alliance we ask only that you commit to becoming greener, that you name a point person to be our liaison, and that you will tell us about your green-er journey.

Environ-mental Achievements of the 69th Annual Tony Awards

This post comes to you from the Broadway Green Alliance

One of the nation’s preeminent cultural events, the Tony Awards, in collaboration with the Broadway Green Alliance, took steps to reduce the environmental impact of its annual awards show, rehearsal period and telecast.

This effort was achieved thanks to the collaborative efforts of The Broadway League, The American Theater Wing, Radio City Music Hall, and White Cherry Entertainment.

Energy

  • The Broadway Green Alliance has purchased renewable energy credits for 100% of the electricity for the rehearsal period and telecast of the Tony Awards.
  • Radio City Music Hall has implemented an enhanced energy-efficiency plan and installed energy-efficient lighting.

Transportation

  • The Broadway Green Alliance has purchased carbon offsets for 100% of the unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions from transportation vehicles for presenters and casts.

Recycling

  • Radio City Music Hall provides extensive recycling backstage as well as for employees and guests. All trash is taken to a materials recovery facility where all recyclables are sorted out and recycled.
  • The production/management office is recycling all electronics, paper, bottles, caps, batteries, office supplies, pens, clips and is re-using binders.

Water

  • Radio City Music Hall has retrofitted their restrooms with low-flow toilets and flush meters. Restroom faucets are hands-free and feature post-consumer recycled content tissue products.

Seven of our Green Captains were also nominated for Tonys this year – click here to see them!

Announcing the Winner of the 2015 College Green Captain Prize for Greener Theater

This post comes to you from the Broadway Green Alliance

The Broadway Green Alliance has just announced the winner of another new award!
The College Green Captain prize was created to reward College Green Captains for their greening efforts on campus productions.  We are pleased to announce that Travis Blackwell, Green Captain at the University of Memphis Theater Department, has won the 2015 prize. To apply for the prize, College Green Captains submitted a one-page summary statement explaining their greening efforts and a cardboard poster showing off the best elements of their greening program. There were three finalists for the prize:  Travis Blackwell, Piper Rasmussen of Barnard University, and Jade Zaroff of Emerson College.The posters of all three finalists were displayed at the BGA booth at the USITT Expo last week.

Travis is in his third year at Memphis working towards his BFA in Theatre Design and Technical Production with an Emphasis in Stage Management.  Travis helped make environmental awareness a part of daily life by including “Green Facts” in paperwork sent to the cast and production team. Daily emails that contained tips and tricks on how to make your day-to-day life more environmentally friendly (thoughts on how to recycle to what kinds of light bulbs to buy) paired with encouraging cast members to recycle waste and reuse supplies, created an overall awareness throughout the cast and department as a whole. Travis will be presented with a framed plaque at USITT and will also receive tickets to the Broadway or touring production of either WICKED or LION KING along with a professional backstage tour of the production and a meeting with a current Broadway Green Captain.

JUJAMCYN THEATERS RECEIVES THE FIRST EVER GREEN BROADWAY AWARD

This post comes to you from the Broadway Green Alliance

In acknowledgement of their exceptional leadership in the Broadway community’s ongoing initiative to become greener

www.broadwaygreenNew York, NY – February 26, 2015 – The Broadway Green Alliance (BGA) is pleased to announce the creation of a new award, the Green Broadway Award, to honor an individual, show or organization for outstanding achievement in making Broadway more environmentally friendly.

Jujamcyn Theaters received the first Green Broadway Award in acknowledgment of their environmental leadership. Jordan Roth accepted the award at the Broadway League’s Biennial Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

BGA Co-Chairs Susan Sampliner and Charles Deull commented, “Important changes are built on leaders taking action. The nominations represent an outstanding group of individuals and theatres. Our winner this year stood out for its leadership internally, in the community, and beyond. At all levels, from porters and cleaners using better products to its President, Jordan Roth, tweeting about greening, the organization has incorporated innovation into its operations and communicated them to others. Complementing its internal actions, Jujamcyn has played a key leadership role in the community, thanks to dedicated support from Jordan Roth and Paul Libin, as well as VP of Building Operations, Jennifer Hershey.”

Jujamcyn’s greening programs included:

– Switching to eco-friendly cleaning products and dilution centers

– Instituting water filtration systems

– Installing bike racks

– Overhauling recycling program and signage

– Instituting energy curtailment and measurement

– Switching all marquee and outside lighting to energy-efficient bulbs.

Jordan Roth, President of Jujamcyn Theaters, stated, “All of us at Jujamcyn are so proud to be a part of a theatre community that cares so deeply about our environment, and we are grateful to the Broadway Green Alliance and our own Jennifer Hershey for helping us all do our part.  There may not be any change in our world as daunting as reversing climate change, but we’ve all learned together that small change adds up to big change.  One different light bulb, one recycled battery, one safer cleaning product.  Multiplied by every performance of every show, every week, across Broadway, across the country.  Together, small steps become big leaps.”

Congratulations Jujamycn!

Enter to Win the BGA College Green Captain Prize for Achievement in Greener Theatre

This post comes to you from the Broadway Green Alliance

As you saw in the last edition of Sightlines, the Broadway Green Alliance has launched a new prize to reward College Green Captains for their greening efforts on campus productions. They have now shared details of the requirements and the deadline.  To apply for the prize, College Green Captains should submit a one-page summary statement explaining their greening efforts and a pdf of a 18″x 24″ cardboard poster showing off the best elements of their greening program. Additional documentation can include a 3-5 minute video or up to 10 pages of written reports or spreadsheets documenting the greening.  Photographs with captions explaining the greening program are encouraged.  Winners will have brought innovative, creative, and/or widely-applied greening and energy-efficiency methods into the design and/or production of theatre at their campus.  The posters of finalists will be displayed at the BGA booth at the USITT Expo in March.

Greener practices can involve – but are not limited to – designing theatrical productions in a greener manner (e.g. alternate materials, energy, lighting, costumes or set pieces); running the show in a greener manner (e.g. energy-efficient lighting, rechargeable batteries, or educating the cast and crew about better practices); striking the production in a way that reduces waste (e.g. re-use, recycling, or composting); or changing front-of-house operations to reduce waste and encourage greener audience practices (e.g. alternative advertising, programs, or tickets).

Entries are due by March 1, 2015 and a winner will be announced at the USITT conference in Cincinnati.  Entries can be sent to green@broadway.org. Though groups can apply, only two people in the group are eligible for the tickets to a Broadway or touring show (WICKED or LION KING) and the professional backstage tour.  The entire group will receive a plaque commemorating their win.  Any student or faculty/staff member interested in helping to green their theatre department is encouraged to volunteer to be a College Green Captain and to sign up at  BroadwayGreen.com/college-green-captains. All prize applicants must be College Green Captains. The Broadway Green Alliance is also inaugurating a Green Production Design Award at SETC (Southeastern Theatre Conference) in March, 2015.

More information about the BGA and the Prize for Achievement in Greener Theatre:

The BGA College Green Captain program is modeled on the successful BGA Broadway Green Captain program, in which a cast or crew member of every Broadway production volunteers to serve as a BGA liaison/go-to member of the production for all things green/environmentally friendlier.  College Green Captains are self-selected members of a college or university theatre department who are committed to greening one or more of the department’s productions.  The BGA provides a kit of better practices, sample timelines, and links to resources and professionals to educate college Green Captains about how to green their productions.  The College Green Captain program works best when there are one or more student Green Captains and a faculty or staff Green Captain to ensure continuity of the greener practices. This faculty or staff Green Captain is the likely person to nominate one or more student Green Captains for this award.

The BGA seeks to encourage artistic growth and the highest standards of excellence in theatre, while including a growing commitment to resource and energy efficiency, reduced toxicity, and environmentally friendlier practices in the design, production, running, and striking of a college production.  We are creating this award to recognize and encourage outstanding BGA College Green Captains for college theatrical productions.

Winners will have brought innovative, creative, and/or widely-applied greening and energy-efficiency methods into the design and/or production of theatre at their campus.

Greener practices can involve – but are not limited to – designing theatrical productions in a greener manner (e.g. alternate materials, energy, lighting, costumes or set pieces); running the show in a greener manner (e.g. energy-efficient lighting, rechargeable batteries, or educating the cast and crew about better practices); striking the production in a way that reduces waste (e.g. re-use, recycling, or composting); or changing front-of-house operations to reduce waste and encourage greener audience practices (e.g. alternative advertising, programs, or tickets).

In short, this award seeks to

  • champion those students whose dedication and commitment to greening help lead their college theatre productions to be more environmentally friendly;
  • recognize, and celebrate the greener changes brought to theatre productions produced in university and college theater programs;
  • encourage colleges and universities to research, invest in, and put into practice more environmentally friendly pre-, post-, and production practices in theatre.

The winner of the BGA College Green Captain award will receive tickets to the Broadway or touring production of either WICKED or LION KING along with a professional backstage tour of the production and a meeting with a current Broadway Green Captain, subject to availability.
