Studio Theatre building committee established

An ivitation has been issued for people to join the Williams Lake Studio Theatre Building Committee.

An ivitation has been issued for people to join the Williams Lake Studio Theatre Building Committee. The Studio Theatre has formed a building committee to explore the options in light of the possibility of the Glendale school closing, says chair Micheal Hodgson in a report posted by the Central Interior Arts and Culture Society.

He says the Studio Theatre has very limited financial resources. The building of a dedicated performing arts centre is not a financial possibility at this time.

Members of the building committee will be tasked with exploring the following options:

1.    Glendale School and the Williams Lake Studio Theatre have grown into a symbiotic relationship. The Williams Lake Studio Theatre fully supports Glendale School and its educational program of French Immersion and the progressive year-round school calendar that compliments the forestry-based economy of the local area. We will discuss what the theatre society can do to support the efforts to keep the school open.

2.    Should the school be closed, we need to explore the possibility of remaining in the gym area of the school as tenants of the school district. Electricity, heat, and water would have to be isolated from the school. Additional costs would also have to be calculated, such as snow removal, heating charges, possible repairs, etc.

3.    Moving the Studio Theatre to a new location.

4.    Explore other options to file a recommendation to the theatre executive.

“Williams Lake Studio Theatre is calling for participants and welcomes the public to sit on the committee,” Hodgson says. “Those with building experience would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to working towards a new and exciting future for our Theatre Society.”
