The Anne Portnuff Theatre
We appreciate the valuable support of:
The Anne Portnuff Theatre, named in honour of a longtime school board member whose dedication to the arts led to the inclusion of a theatre when the Yorkton Regional High School was built in 1967, has been a major contributor to the cultural, educational and artistic growth of our community.
Over the past 50 years, the seats of the theatre have been filled with people taking part in and enjoying school and community musicals, plays, band concerts, dance recitals and competitions, film presentations, graduations, professional artistic events, rallies, and much more.
Those were still the original seats installed in the theatre in 1967, and 50 years later it was high time to replace them.
We have raised the $300,000 needed to replace the 724 seats in the theatre. Many individual contributors, as well as corporate supporters, have made this possible.
But there is more to be done. The curtains and much of the technical equipment is also original, and/or greatly outdated. Our goal now is to raise enough money to replace the curtains, replace the lighting system with new efficient LED lights, and to replace the sound system. The estimated cost of that is $150,000.
The Anne Portnuff Theatre Revitalization Committee needs your continued help to raise these funds for this vital community and educational facility.
Individual donations receive a plaque on the back of a seat for every $350 donated towards seats, lights, curtain and sound system. Since corporate donations are recognized separately, we have lots more room on seat backs to recognize individual donations.
Each plaque will have an inscription such as your name, family name, business name, memorial inscription, graduating class, community group... the choice is yours.
The Canada 150 concert was held at the Anne Portnuff Theatre on Dec. 10 to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, and raise funds for the revitalization project.
