8-year-old donates $100 to Denver Actors Fund

Siebert useBy John Moore

We can conservatively say that hundreds of people in the local theatre community and beyond have now contributed to the new Denver Actors Fund through donations, volunteering or other in-kind support. But I think today we can say we have our new youngest supporter of the fund.

Nate Patrick Siebert, an 8-year-old actor who recently appeared as Tom of Warwick in the Arvada Center’s “Camalot” and later in “A Christmas Carol” and Starkey’s “South Pacific in Concert,” dropped off a $100 donation yesterday. Nate and his photographer mother, Laura, won the Aurora Fox’s “Quest for the Holy Grail” contest grand prize, and Nate decided to donate part of his $500 booty to the Denver Actors Fund.

Leading up to the opening of “Spamalot,” the Aurora Fox held a “geocache treasure hunt.” Weekly clues were published on the company’s web site such as, “In order to pass, you must find a shrubbery!” The Sieberts won.

We at the Denver Actors Fund are grateful Nate found that shrubbery!

Thanks to Nate Patrick Siebert and Laura Siebert for being great human beings on this planet.
