Chanticleers Theater has a new look
By Al Murdach
Tired of the old Chanticleers Theatre look? Well, take a look now! The theater has been cleaned, repainted and fitted with newer furniture, fixtures, and decorations. The lobby in particular has been completely redone. Included in this ÒredoÓ is new storage for props and flats in the backstage area, a security screen for the green room, and a new lobby configuration.
All this is the result of countless hours by theater volunteers and friends, especially by artists and craftsmen like Georgia Lee and Floyd Wayne. Their achievement was largely financed - not by government grants - but by donations and ticket sales in the local community. The result is a theater for the 21st Century. Once again we can see the vitality of local community theaters like Chanticleers and the importance of community support.
Attend a performance or arrange a visit to see the impressive results of ChanticleersÕ new look. The theater is located at 3683 Quail Avenue in Castro Valley, and can be reached by telephone at (510) 733-5483 or online at www.chanticleers.org.
