STATEN ISLAND, NY — The historic St. George Theatre has been donated to the Richmond Dance Ensemble Foundation who will now raise funds to further restore the theater. According to a report in the Staten Island Advance, after deciding against tearing the theater down to make way for a parking lot, the real estate developer who purchased the St. George in 2000 as part of a “package” has now decided to donate it to the community.

In addition to dance performances, the St. George will also host “dinner theaters, shows and dance workshops for children” and feature a new theater cafe.

(Thanks to Jean Siegel for sending in this report.)
