This Year's Project: Storm damage 2023
About Our Organization
This community oriented organization works on the renovation and improvement of the Fox Theatre for the use by area individuals, groups, and organizations. Our organization is entirely volunteer. The Alliance for the Ecouragement of Visual and Performing Arts is a 501c3 organization overseen by a board of directors and managed by the Fox Theatre Operations and Events Committee. These volunteers support educational and charitable as well as cultural events. By renovating the historic Fox Theatre we are able to provide a beautiful venue for the area that also holds many happy memories for many folks from days gone by.
This past year has been difficult for everyone due to the pandemic. We are cautiously moving ahead and new bookings are being accepted. Shows will begin in October for the 21 - 22 season. Our current project is to get the marquee updated with wiring, paint, and messaging potential. This project has the go ahead and will begin as the labor situation improves. The dressing room flooring needs a nice easy to clean floor covering. The cement floor is painted. The seating fund drive will begin sometime in the near future. The current seats have served us well but it is time to refurbish or replace the seats. While the seating is being redone the flooring in the auditorium needs to be reworked. We appreciate your help through donations of time and funding and through your support of events presented at the Fox.
Current Project: Storm damage 2023
For fans and friends of the historic Fox Theatre the Big Give 2023 is of special importance. A lightning strike at the end of May caused significant damage that must be addressed before operations can return to normal. Donations are needed to repair water damage to the foyer and ticket booth, to fix the plaster work on the auditorium wall on the right closest to the stage, to restore closed circuit television, and to replace parts of the DMX for the stage lighting system.
Previous donations to the Light Up the Fox or new seats campaigns will be kept intact. If you prefer to continue to donate to one of these projects please designate your choice on your contribution form or on your check.
