As its plans for a new live theatre complex here in Navasota continue, the Navasota Theatre Alliance is fixing up its old venue, thanks to a ten thousand dollar gift from its neighbor, Union Pacific.
And as this is the second year in a row it’s received this grant, NTA Vice President Sheryl Brown reports they’ll be able to use these funds for upkeep of the Alliance’s Sunny Furman Theatre.
And that’s a good thing, she adds, because lots of repairs are necessary on the old playhouse that have so-far been diverting funds initially raised for the Blue Moon Project.
Speaking of which, the VP tells Navasota News the organization has moved on to the second phase of that venture and looking for bigger donations and grants from businesses and organizations.
And since the project began, brown continues, the alliance has decided to nix the original second-story concept, opting instead for a single story with a bigger floor-plan to “play with” instead.
As plans continue to make the Navasota Theatre Alliance’s new theatre complex City Hall’s neighbor, you’ll hear about them at 1550 on your AM dial.
