  • <p>As a part of a special “Thank You” to volunteers and everyone in the Community who had donated or offered assistance to the theatre in some way, a special block party was held and the new marquee was brought to life for just one night on June 8th, 2013. The name B. Price was drawn from a raffle, entitling her to be the first person to flip the switch and “Light Up The Night” with the newly renovated and up-fitted marquee. This was the first time in thirty years the marquee was fully powered, with 100% of the neon and ambient lights activated. It was also the debut of the new additions to the marquee: the upper letter board and the diamond topped, neon tower centerpiece.</p>
              <p>The theatre group plans to occasionally turn on the marquee to announce fundraising events and mark renovation milestones up until the theatre is in full operation.</p>
