EXCITING times at the Florida Chautauqua Theatre!
On Friday, June 29, at 1:00 pm, April Wilkes from the St. Joe Community Foundation presented a very generous foundation check that will enable us to begin Phase 1 of our lighting renovation project.
Our current lighting system is at a point of total system failure. The last show had us flipping breakers and tripping switches- an electrical nightmare! The system was installed when our theater was restored in 1996 – it is OLD! Replacement estimates are running at around $120,000.00. We have to raise a tremendous amount of money and are most appreciative of this St. Joe Community Foundation Grant.
