When the Town Players of New Canaan's production of "Our Town" opened Friday, Oct. 25, it marked the beginning of a season of renewal at the Powerhouse Theatre, according to Cheryl Petrone, co-president of the TPNC.
"We have all new stage lighting, a new video display in our lobby, an impressive new website, and much more is on the way," she said.
The New Canaan Community Foundation began the renewal project with a $13,200 grant. A new dimmer system and upgraded light board will be funded with a $5,000 grant from the foundation and the proceeds of an opening night gala.
The new video display in the lobby was funded by donations made in memory of Tanya Bickley, a lifelong New Canaan resident and member of TPNC, who died Sept. 8 at 71.
"Our Town" will be performed at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturday through Nov. 9 and 2:30 p.m. Nov. 3.
Tickets are $20, and $15 for students and seniors. For information or tickets, visit www.tpnc.org or call 203-966-7371.
