Ariel Theater asks community for help
(2007-12-20)
(WOUB) - The Ariel Theater in Gallipolis needs help keeping the lights on and the heater running.

The Ariel-Ann Carson Dater Performing Arts Centre has just launched an Endowment Fund Campaign.

Executive Director Mark Daggett says they hope to raise $2.5 million over the next two years.

Daggett says along with community members, business owners and major corporations will be asked for support.

Money raised will go toward general operations and additional renovations, including reconditioning of the exterior brickwork.

He says supporting the center and its programs benefits area young people.

The facility is home to the Ariel Players, the Ariel Junior Theater and the Ohio Valley Symphony.
