We are Changing for You

The past couple of summers have been busy at Foellinger Theatre! We have been making changes to improve the safety and enhance "Curb Appeal".  All of this work has been done in an effort to provide an enhanced experience for Theatre goers. 

Improvements scheduled for 2014 include: electrical upgrades, concrete improvements, roof fascia improvements, seating improvements, signage, and lighting. 

In 2013 we expanded seating on the east side.

In 2012 we updated and re-roofed the storage room area.

For 2011 the following improvements were made: a new roof, new electronic sign and new lights at the overflow parking lot.  Performers enjoyed a new enclosed artists dining area. The cost of these new improvements was over $200,000.

Thanks to David Myers for his donation of a piano  and stained glass that was formerly at Fred Myers Pianos Organs Clocks.

Improvements made in 2009/2010 include: new dressing rooms, relamped house lights, new stage lights and a new light control board.

Additional changes made as part of the Park Bond Issue include: an accessible ramp to the stage in the mid section of the house, hand railings in the side aisles, a new canopy from the house to the new restrooms and new restrooms for performers.  These improvements total an additional $300,000.

In 2008 the Foellinger Foundation awarded the Theatre $500,000 for improvements.  Some of the improvements include: painting the front wall of the stage, painting the sound clouds, re-roofing the stage house, installing a new sound system, new curtains, new lighting and installing the aluminum covering of the rear of the Theatre arch and end caps.

Below are some photos taken to show you some of the changes that took place.
