The Lambs theatrical and social club is one of the new naming-rights sponsors of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s New York Computer Lab program and facility. The two organizations participated in an official ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 17 to designate the facility as The Lambs Computer Lab of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation.
Located at 1900 Broadway, the lab offers the latest in video and audio editing programs, writing software and more to SAGAFTRA performing artists at no cost — allowing union artists to create, edit and submit reels, demos and résumés to projects.
SAG-AFTRA New York Local Board member Marc Baron, who has been serving as the “Shepherd” of The Lambs and president of its foundation for seven years, said, “Thanks to the generous bequest of Lamb Scott Glascock, The Lambs Foundation will continue its mission for many years to come. We are particularly pleased to commit to long-term support of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation in recognition of the support its computer lab provides members.”
The Lambs is America’s oldest theatrical organization, founded by Charles and Mary Lamb in 1874. Many of the people who founded Screen Actors Guild and Actors’ Equity Association were members of the club. In 2014, then-SAG-AFTRA President Ken Howard was honored by The Lambs with an honorary lifetime membership.
