Have a Seat!

The theater is growing more vibrant each day with new performances and ongoing refurbishment. We have completed this project by installing 390 new seats, many with cup holders and 100 with desk tops.  We have also refinished the floor and installed new carpet in the aisles. You can still “buy” a seat and have a plaque with your name or the name of someone you are honoring placed on the seat, we welcome your support!
