SavetheBalcony #Fundraiser Update
You probably heard that we commissioned an engineer study and found that our Historic Princess Ave Playhouse balcony had some structural matters that needed "tending to". Approximately $60,000 worth of restoration work to be done was quoted!! So as a Board, we decided to go full tilt and fix it!
To bring you up to speed, with the generous help from HIRA Construction, Yarmouth Metals, SPH Engineering and invaluable contributions from Green Lane Community Trust Fund, Relish Elgin and City of St. Thomas, we have completed phase 1: to Stabilize. The Balcony was in full use and enjoyed for December's shows of Alice in Wonderland, written by Andrew O'Leary. #SavetheBalcony #Fundraiser gift to ETG.
The integrity and architectural beauty of the Historical Princess Ave Playhouse is cherished by our thriving performing-arts community.
Stay tuned for details on future #SavetheBalcony #Fundraiser events to complete phase 2 of the restoration process: To Beautify.
Elgin Theatre Guild is a 'Registered Not for Profit' Charitable Organization and we will issue tax receipts for donations over $20.
We have a very committed fund raising helping to get the job done. We all aspire to provide great local theatre and music concerts for many years to come. Thank you for your past support and look forward to seeing you at future shows.
Please let us know if you would like to contribute to this campaign. Every donation matters!
