The Kempenfelt Community Players (KCP) is a community theatre group that has been performing in Barrie and the surrounding area for over 35 years. They are made up of enthusiastic members who have a love for live theatre. New members are always welcome, both onstage and behind the scenes. We were approached by KCP in 2007 to become one of their media sponsors. Knowing the quality of the work they produce and the opportunities they provide for community members of all ages, we were happy to support them with an updated logo, website and ongoing marketing materials.
From the time Chad Ballantyne opened Rhubarb Media in 2006, his company has been one of the most active and creative supporters of Cultural Development in Barrie. I have had the pleasure of working with Chad and his artistic team since they began moulding and re-shaping Kempenfelt Community Players’ image in all pieces of print work. Over the last 9 years Rhubarb Media has provided in-kind work to produce Season Subscriptions, posters, flyers, banners, a new logo, and beautiful theatre programs that improve our image and achieve a professional look that we could never manage on our own. But this is just a fraction of the support that Rhubarb Media provides to the Cultural growth in Barrie.
In my opinion, the in-kind support demonstrated by Rhubarb Media is one-of-a-kind in the city of Barrie (exceeding 100K and growing!). As owner, Chad is a person who lives and acts on his beliefs that culture is the heart to any city. If there is a meeting about cultural growth in Barrie, I can guarantee that he is there. If there is a council meeting where cultural spending is going to be discussed, you’ll find him there.
Chad is a person who acts on his values; he is generous with his time and talents supporting other groups who can then better share their artistic works.Julie Underhill
