The 4th Street
Theater was selected as a recipient of a Community Fund Grant from the
Porter County Community Foundation. The grant provided funds to acquire new
lighting equipment necessary to expand the theater's artistic vision through
their performances. Color-changing LED lights will replace old lighting
instruments which are more energy-efficient and allow for more flexibility
in production design.
In addition, a new
laptop and projector will help their volunteer team run sound cues, lighting
cues, and special effects, expanding their current capabilities to enhance a
performance. This new equipment will broaden the theaters creative capacity
and foster local talent of all ages through the arts.
