This Year's Project: Marquee Upgrades

About Our Organization

This community oriented organization works on the renovation and improvement of the Fox Theatre for the use by area individuals, groups, and organizations.  Our organization is entirely volunteer.  The Alliance for the Ecouragement of Visual and Performing Arts is a 501c3 organization overseen by a board of directors and managed by the Fox Theatre Operations and Events Committee.  These volunteers support educational and charitable as well as cultural events.  By renovating the historic Fox Theatre we are able to provide a beautiful venue for the area that also holds many happy memories for many folks from days gone by.


This past year has been difficult for everyone due to the pandemic.  We are cautiously moving ahead and new bookings are being accepted.  Shows will begin in October for the 21 - 22 season.  Our current project is to get the marquee updated with wiring, paint, and messaging potential.   This project has the go ahead and will begin as the labor situation improves.  The dressing room flooring needs a nice easy to clean floor covering.  The cement floor is painted. The seating fund drive will begin sometime in the near future. The current seats have served us well but it is time to refurbish or replace the seats.  While the seating is being redone the flooring in the auditorium needs to be reworked. We appreciate your help through donations of time and funding and through your support of events presented at the Fox.

Current Project: Marquee Upgrades

The Fox Theatre Marquee is a mainstay on mainstreet.  The Fox Theatre Operations and Events Committee and the AEVPA Board of Directors would like to keep the marquee shining on mainstreet so we have begun the process of giving the sign a face lift.  The overall look will be the same but the sign will get a new coat of paint.  By replacing the incandesent light bulbs with new LED bulbs and using LED lighting the cost of running the marquee should be reduced.  The manual messaging will be replaced with LED panels. Information on current shows or events can be instantly updated.  We would appreciate your continuing help to make it happen.
