DELAWARE COUNTY COUNCIL GIVES MEDIA THEATRE $125,000 GRANT
The gift, presented by County Council Chairman Tom McGarrigle, allows Media Music Theatre Company to thrive as Delaware County's only professional music theatre organization in the historic location on State Street.
"We are honored to assist the theatre company with this gift," McGarrigle said. "We look forward to many more wonderful productions here. It's often referred to as The Miracle on State Street due to its many opportunities offered for young people through education and the award-winning professional musical theatre produced here."
The gift was accepted by Media Music Theatre Company's Board of Directors Chairman Perry Ecksel and Director of Development Austin Connors.
The opening night of "The Addams Family" held Friday September 26 had an audience of approximately 400 theatre patrons and guests enjoying the region's premiere of the Broadway hit musical comedy. They applauded enthusiastically when the check was presented prior to the show.
"The Addams Family" is on stage at The Media Theatre through November 2. For tickets call 610-891-0100 or visit mediatheatre.org
