South End Theatre Getting Help From The Province

Some much needed money coming to the InterAction School of Performing Arts at 228 Germain Street. The provincial government is contributing 50 thousand dollars to help pay for upgrades to the theatre building, itself, including a new roof. 

200 young people get their creative juices flowing by attending classes and workshops at the theatre along with performing. The theatre has been around for 13 years.

The President of the theatre's Board of Directors Jeff Sheehan tells CHSJ News this type of training will help them in the work world because it develops creative thinking. Sheehan works in I-T and says some of his colleagues develop software during the day but are involved in the arts during their off hours. 

A fundraising campaign is underway with the goal being 150 thousand dollars to pay for all of the upgrades.
