We can’t close the barn door after the horse is gone because, well, we don’t have a horse.
But we do have an historic community theatre with loading doors that look like Uncle Henry’s barnyard doors—after the tornado hit! We didn’t use them on the set when we performed The Wizard of Oz last season, but we could have.
Our 92-year-old exterior loading doors are warped, peeling, cracked, and practically hanging from the hinges. They are original to the historic Baldwin Theatre built in 1922 and are used constantly to load and unload sets and equipment for productions.
Given the chance, and with your support on GIVING TUESDAY, we can replace these barnyard-looking loading doors! When we saved the Baldwin from demolition in 1985, we restored the theatre’s interior to its original grandeur. Other improvements are made as we are able to afford them. With your help, we can meet our goal to install new updated doors for our 60th anniversary season in 2015.
The amount we need to raise to replace the doors? Approximately $7,500 (does not include horse).
Who knows, we might even get a horse!
