A Successful Fall Fundraiser

Live entertainment performed by Opera To Go 

The Colonial Theatre’s 2018 Fall Fundraiser Gala, “Dynamic Duos and Stellar Solos,” inspired great memories and brought in just over $26,000 in support, all of which will help underwrite the Theatre’s Education and Outreach Program.

Our very own Mary Poppins, Director of Education and Community Egagement Vicky Pittman, and Keene State College Music Lecturer Matthew Leese came to celebrate!

With 102 in attendance, The Colonial was able to reach their fundraising goal, which could not have been done without the love and support of the attendees.

Thanks to our stage crew and all the other countless employees for making the stage look fabulous!

According to Director of Development Eric V. Weisenberger, the night turned out very well. “I was extremely pleased with the collaboration of staff and the community,” said Weisenberger. “The stage looked amazing and I enjoyed seeing new and familiar faces.”

The Colonial is very grateful for all who supported this year’s event and wishes to thank the following:

  • Bergeron Construction Co., event sponsor
  • BarCraft Boot Bars, event sponsor
  • G.A. Perry DDS Keene PLLC, event sponsor
  • G&R Roofing, LLC, event sponsor
