Thomaston Savings Bank donated $15,000 to the Landmark Community Theatre (LCT) in support of their upcoming season at the Thomaston Opera House. The Thomaston Opera House was built in 1884 and serves as a cultural and recreational center for the town and surrounding communities.
“We are thrilled to give back to the Landmark Community Theatre. We are proud to support the arts and the operations of the historic Opera House, contributing towards the economic development in our community and surrounding areas.” – Stephen L. Lewis, President & CEO, Thomaston Savings Bank
Presently, the Opera House is host to multiple arts and cultural events serving 15,000-18,000 patrons a year. Art and cultural opportunities are an integral part of all great communities. Over the past 50 years, the community has mobilized to protect and restore this building believing that architecture is in itself, an art form, standing as an example of our history and culture on local and national levels.
“We are looking forward to facilitating and completing the restoration of the Opera House. The proposed project will create a state-of-the-art performance space while restoring a treasured historic landmark. This in turn will increase tourism, support our local and regional economies, and instill pride in Connecticut’s unique architecture. We are very grateful for the support of Thomaston Savings Bank and the community.” – Jeff Dunn, Executive Director, Landmark Community Theatre
The LCT is committed to providing high level theatrical productions for the enjoyment of the community. Preparations are underway for the 2022 Season Shows including: Let It Be, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Addams Family, and White Christmas. Opening night for Let It Be is April 30th.
