We have begun a historic journey to expand and improve the Alberta Bair Theater. It’s been 31 years since the old Fox Theatre was renovated to become our beloved Alberta Bair Theater. In that time tens of thousands of people have attended performances to Tony awarded Broadway musicals, Grammy Awarded musicians and the best of ballet and modern dance, as well as theatre for all ages. As stewards of ABT and its legacy of excellence, we must again renovate the theater to continue bringing world class entertainment to our region.
The latest concept design for the exterior of the renovated ABT is above. Included in the $12 million renovation needs:
Main Floor Lobby & Concessions
Stage Rigging System
New Audio System
Balcony Lobby & Concessions
New Lighting System
Increased Mezzanine Restrooms
Increased Main Floor Restrooms
Building Code Requirements
New Ticket Office
We are fortunate several organizations, families and individuals understand the value Alberta Bair Theater adds to our region in terms of quality of life and community as well as economic impact and have risen to the challenge as philanthropic leaders.
John Jones, president of Charles M Bair Family Trust, Jan Dietrich, executive director of Alberta Bair Theater and Brooke Murphy, board president of Alberta Bair Theater, announce the foundation’s $2.5 million gift to the ABT Capital Campaign at a sold out performance of Jersey Boys in December 2017.
These are exciting times and we invite you to be a part of Alberta Bair Theater’s legacy.
