Our Charity of the Month for August is The Warner Theatre!
The Warner reopened as a performing arts center in 1983 and an $8,700,000 restoration of the art deco main theatre was completed in November 2002.
Following restoration of its main facility, the Warner purchased the adjacent historic Mertz building and embarked on Phase II of its restoration/renovation campaign. In March 2008, the Carole and Ray Neag Performing Arts Center was opened. The Warner complex now includes: a 300-seat studio theatre, an onsite school for the arts, a 1,772-seat historic Art Deco theatre, a 7,500 square foot costume shop and prop/production storage facility and two retail establishments.
Today, the Warner Theatre is the largest performing arts center in Northwest Connecticut – over 100,000 patrons attended 200+ public events last season. These included concerts, professional touring theatre/dance, movies, opera simulcast, community theatre, debates, dance recitals, high school graduations and dance competitions.
Make a reservation for Sunday through Saturday (Friday and Saturday for lunch only) and we will donate 10% of your check to this cause. You win. The charity wins.
