Theatre Roof Repair
|Posted on November 5, 2014 at 3:15 PM||comments (2597)|
Update on September 30, 2015. The theatre's roof has been replaced. The Payne County Economic Development Authoriy awarded a grant for payment of the roof in full as well as a grant to repaint and repair the front of the Annex building. This grant was a cooperative effort with Downtown Cushing Revitalization Association (DCRA) who also received a grant for needed improvements to their pocket park across the street from the community theatre. We appreciate the donations received for our roof project and those funds will go to repairing the ceiling from water damage from the leaking roof. Those interested in making donations for the continued operation of the theatre should make their checks payable to Cushing Community Theatre, P.O. Box 414, Cushing, Oklahoma 74023. Thank you for your continued support.
