Valley Community Theatre Continues To Raise Funds For New Building

Alice Larocque is shown purchasing a raffle ticket on a beautiful food basket donated by Desjardins’ Food Basics to the Valley Community Theater to help them raise some funds that will go toward their goal of one day building their own site in Valley East. Shown seated at the table, are Muriel Lalonde, left, who is the Front of House Manager with the Theatre, and Sandra Desjardins, Secretary of the Theatre Board.

The long term goal of the Valley Community Theatre is to one day have their own permanent building. “A new building will mean that we don’t have to put up and take down sets for our productions and rehearsals. It will be so much more convenient to have a place to call our own and it will definitely increase our image and exposure,” explained Sandra.

As well as the raffle on the food basket, the group was holding their Annual Valentine’s Penny Table, offering visitors to the mall chances to win an excellent assortment of prizes.

Alice, who has lived in Hanmer for 45 years, was pleased to support the efforts of the Valley Community Theatre. “This town has been very good to me all these years. I love it here and like to see groups like this adding to our community.

The next production for the Valley Community Theater will be held on May 26 & 27 when they host a variety show entitled, “Intimate & Interactive” An Evening of Variety. The location will be announced soon.
