Deck awning adds to theatre space
IN an astounding example of community spirit the Jetty Memorial Theatre has a brand new awning to cover the outside deck.
Almost six months ago Greg White from Coffs Carports was attending a performance at the theatre when he decided the rain wouldn’t keep patrons locked inside anymore.
He took it upon himself to raise donations from almost a dozen other local businesses and build the glorious addition to the theatre in his spare time.
The end result, complete with new landscaping, which was also donated, is a welcome addition to the theatre’s foyer space and has become the perfect place for audiences to enjoy a glass of wine from the newly opened Theatre Bar before and after their favourite performances.
To acknowledge the generous contribution of the many businesses that have donated materials and time, the theatre will be having an official opening tomorrow from 5.30pm.
