The Castellana Foundation, Peter Castellana III on behalf of the Castellana family, Western Beef and parent company Cactus Holdings, proudly support HB Studio in the Manhattan neighborhood of Greenwich Village. Through support from The Castellana Foundation, HB Studio is able to invest in the preservation of their historic buildings and provide the environment necessary for its staff, students and faculty to explore and enrich their artistic talents.
Here is more information on HB Studio, taken from their website:
“Conceived as an artistic and working home, the Herbert Berghof Studio offers an outlet for practice and growth for the professional theatre artist and an opportunity for the young to establish roots in their intended craft. The Studio’s guiding principle is creative freedom, which has as its logical consequence, a responsibility to a noble art.”
Peter Castellana III, Peter Castellana Jr. and the Castellana Foundation, along with Western Beef were happy to support HB Studio by making a donation towards their annual Spring Clean Up. The donation helped them purchase food and beverages at the local Western Beef to help keep their many volunteers energized while they worked on maintenance and restoration projects of the historic Greenwich Village buildings. Spring Clean Up allows them to provide safe, clean and beautiful spaces for their students, staff and faculty year round.
HB Studio is a nonprofit organization that supports vigorous, lifelong practice in the theatre arts based on a solid foundation of practical training. The Studio was conceived as a place where artists at all stages of their careers could continue to work and train between engagements, supported and challenged buy their colleagues, in a space free from pressures related to commercial success. Its students, faculty, and alumni form a vibrant community of actors, playwrights, and directors
