Studio Theatre starts seat campaign

Studio Theatre has conducted a patron survey and discovered that the most requested improvement to the theatre was new seating.

Special to the Tribune/Advisor

In each of our last two seasons the Studio Theatre has conducted a patron survey and discovered that the most requested improvement to our theatre was new seating.

This has been a needed upgrade for some time and, therefore, last season we set the wheels in motion to start a seating replacement and theatre refurbishment project.

The purchase of new seating is a significant investment for our small and enduring community theatre, and we are now asking our patrons and supporters to help us raise the funding we need.

Seat sponsorship is available for a $300 tax deductible donation per seat. Your donation will contribute directly to our refurbishment project and greatly support the Williams Lake Studio Theatre, now in its 61st season. To recognize your generous contribution, a custom plaque will be affixed to the front of one of our 98 new seats. You may have your own name, family name(s), memorial, or business name displayed for years to come.
