MEDIA RELEASE April 18, 2018
Lindsay – The Board of Directors for Lindsay Little Theatre is pleased to announce that they have been awarded a five-month, $25,500 Capital grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. The funds will be used for improvements to their 55 George Street West studio. The grant will be used to upgrade the building’s electrical system, replace the furnace and install air conditioning.
“The Lindsay Little Theatre has been an important part of our community for many years, contributing not only to our local culture and heritage, but also helping those in need,” said MPP Laurie Scott. “I am excited that this excellent volunteer community theatre will be able to upgrade its facilities and continue to thrive for decades to come.”
The Theatre is especially thrilled about its soon to be installed air conditioning unit. In the past, productions had to be adjusted because of the heat in the building. But now, with the planned improvements, programming and scheduling of Spring, Summer and Fall shows can be more flexible and theatre-goers, production staff and the actors will be able to enjoy the theatre year-round in comfort.
Lindsay Little Theatre is a community theatre group, operated solely by volunteers. It has a proud history spanning more than 50 years of high quality theatrical and musical productions. The theatre provides opportunities for the community to experience and learn about live theatre in an intimate, accessible setting.
