An update on the 4th St. Theatre. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it is wonderful. The things left to do are the stage lighting and curtains, the carpet, seats and finishing restoring the terra cotta on the inside walls and laying the sidewalk and entry way stars plus several small things. We continue to fund raise so we can finish the restoration this year. We will then have a grand opening. Thank you for the comment from JAlex about the Marquee magazine. THS did a magnificent job on it and we are spreading it around so if anyone wants a copy do get in touch with me. My e-mail is
An update on Moberly’s 4th Street Theatre restoration…
We have raised over $700,000 so far and have about $250,000 to go. We have paid for everything as we have done it so we stay out of debt. Now ready to install the HVAC system. Have the plumbing and electric infrasture in also all the frame work plus much more. We are planning a volunteer work day in July. Have had several fundraisers this spring. One, a Cemetery Walk went well and a Vaudeville Variety Show went very well. We need ideas for fundraisers or funding sources so please share with us. Many ulumni groups are wanting to hold their reunions at the theatre as soon as we can let them and I hope that is soon. Carolee, PD
Actually B&B didn’t cover over any of the terra cotta work or changed much except put curved walls on each side of the stage to tighten up the area for the large screen. These will be taken down
for the restoration to open the area again.
Fundraising is continuing but contractors will start in Dec. 2004 on phase one.
