We need to raise $15,000 to replace our aging curtains and alarm system
We are in the need to replace our security system not just for our theater but for our community renters (such as schools). Our current system is over 20 years old and works on outdated technology, but we simply do not have the funds to update and replace the entire system. A new, up to date alarm system would give us the security we need and the safety our renters and patrons deserve. Security is of course paramount for our audience and a new alarm system would update and improve our security. It would also allow us to assure our renters (such as schools and other non-profits) that their belongings are safe in our space.
In addition, our curtains are very old and are "hand me downs" given to us by another theater after they got new curtains. With over 20 years of heavy use they are falling apart, with large visible holes and worn patches. The curtains are used by every show on our stage and the wear and tear are easily seen by the audience, affecting both the quality of our shows and that of any renter we bring as a revenue stream. Since we sponsor and rent to so many schools and children’s programs we would like to offer them a truly professional space to showcase their talents. In addition we like to keep bringing in renters to increase our revenue stream to help our bottom line. New curtains in top shape enhance the student’s experience and entice others to use our space. In addition it brings a polish to our own shows that our actors and audience deserve.
