The end is near for our online video series, “Patron Saints.” It spotlights supporters of the arts and the venue to which they donate. These people are an important part of what keeps our arts community so vibrant. If you haven’t seen it yet, there are still two weeks left.
Peter Salefsky is this week’s Patron Saint for the nonprofit theater company PLATO. PLATO is a new performing-arts group, and, as of now, is looking for a permanent home, so patronage is essential. Salefsky says he believes in Artistic Director Kyle Turoff and her mission. He’s known her since she was a young girl performing on the stage at The Golden Apple Dinner Theatre. Turoff considers Salefsky her saving grace.
