BRAWLEY – The Steering Committee for the Brawley Playhouse Theatre invitesÂ any one interested in volunteeringÂ to assistÂ in the next several stages of the restoration of the Brawley PlayhouseÂ Theater to attend a meeting at 5:00 pm, Thursday, May 30 at the Brawley Chamber of Commerce boardÂ room.
At that time, the plans will be discussed, determine howÂ each interestedÂ individual would like to help, and tour theÂ cleaned up lobbyÂ of the theater.
The restoration of the Brawley Playhouse Theatre is the objective of the Brawley Community Foundation (BCF) and the TheatreÂ RestorationÂ Committee.
The focus of the restoration is to make the Theatre an important element of revitalizing downtown Brawley.
The plans include up to 428 seats, a stage for theatrical and musical productions, an orchestra pit, a movie screen, a kitchen and bar, and office spaces.
The BCF has funded $70,000 to complete the facade of the building.
In order toÂ proceed, the TheatreÂ RestorationÂ Committee needs to show support of the community for further work by re-paying the money. It is hoped that with support of donations that this will indicate the interest by the community in a multi-purpose theatre/art center.
Donations for the restoration of the Brawley Playhouse Theatre can be mailed to;
Brawley Community Foundation
