WE'VE REACHED OUR FIRST FUNDRAISING GOAL!
Thanks to the generosity of our local community theater lover's and assistance from the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund who helped us turn $200K into $400k.
Green Leaf Construction has begun work on the project since early March 2018. We are all excited to begin to have a regular space to work on our sets and store our properties.
Thank you to everyone for continuing to support the Stratton legacy!
