JAFFREY, New Hampshire (November 2, 2017) As construction nears, The Park Theatre reported today that finishing touches are being put on groundbreaking as soon as possible for the new 485-seat performing arts facility in downtown Jaffrey. Originally built in 1922, the re-imagined and rebuilt-from-the ground-up Park
Theatre will present live theatrical performances, children’s programs, concerts, and films. The dream of the community is becoming reality for the thousands of fans and supporters of the Theatre.
Since June of this year, and the fulfillment of municipal codes, the project raised over $800,000 for construction and has just received an anonymous $25,000 challenge match to raise the final funds required to start construction. The Town issued the project its building permit last week. The construction management team at Hutter Construction Corporation is coordinating schedules with its subcontractors to begin work as soon as possible. “As we pull all these final pieces together, it’s looking more and more like we’ll actually start sometime between Thanksgiving and Hanukkah,” noted Caroline Hollister, chair of the Board of
Trustees. Read Press Release
