Deadline looms to build Rock Mountain Repertory Theatre’s lobby and dressing rooms

August 1, 2010 – That is the date that looms ahead of Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre’s Raise the Curtain! Capital Campaign.

“As everyone drives down Grand Avenue and sees the construction site, I’m sure they see the progress being made by Big Valley Construction,” said Chad Scott, Capital Campaign Manager. “However, only a portion of the theatre is being built. Funding is still needed to construct the lobby, dressing rooms and rehearsal/youth theatre room.”

To earn three challenge gifts, valued at $350,000, RMRT must meet the $5 million total project goal by Aug. 1.

To date, RMRT has raised $4,725,000. If the remaining $275,000 is not raised, then the $350,000 will be lost and the remaining rooms will not be built.

“We want to express how grateful we are to the entire Grand County community for their generosity and belief in RMRT’s dream. We raised $4.7 million in two years!” said Judy Jensen, Campaign Chairperson. “However, we need to make one final push to complete the dream.”

To help with the “final push,” RMRT continues its “Take Your Seat, Leave Your Legacy” campaign, offering naming rights to the new theatre’s 296 seats. For a $1,000 donation, individuals will earn an engraved, personalized plaque to be placed on one of the new theatre seats.

For a $5,000 donation, the donor can choose the seat on which the plaque will be placed.

“We encourage businesses, families and organizations to also consider joining together to purchase a chair for RMRT,” said Jensen.
