MEMORIAL FUND

The Neil Allen Peckett Memorial Fund, an ongoing program under the umbrella of TNW Ensemble Theater, Inc., is administered by TNW Ensemble Theater producing artistic directors, Danielle Dresden and Donna Peckett, and members of the TNW Ensemble Theater Board of Directors.

The initial contribution was generously donated in 1988, by Neil’s Uncle and Aunt, Irvin and Carol Peckett (both deceased 2007).

Neil Peckett was the brother of TNW Ensemble Theater producing artistic director, Donna Peckett and the son of Dorothy and Sidney Peckett. He courageously took his life September 9, 1988, facing certain death from AIDS.  A musician, actor and health care worker, Neil and Donna collaborated on many theater and dance projects for more than twenty years.
