Help get The Gateway up and running

The Wayne Theatre Alliance is moving forward with its plans for the remodeling 329 West Main for its Gateway performance space. The Board of the WTA has determinded that none of the money that it has raised for the Wayne Theatre will be used for the Gateway, meaning the Alliance must raise additional funds to cover the costs of the refurbishing.

The Alliance plans to build a stage, hang a light and sound system, create box office and concession spaces, buy chairs and tables, lights, mics, speakers, cable, sound and light boards, signage, curtains, et cetera. A rough estimate of the cost for the project is $20,000.

The Alliance has raised $8,195 toward the goal to date.
