Little Theater on the Bay is receiving $18,990 from the Oregon Cultural Trust for Phase VII upgrades to the historic Liberty Theater in North Bend. These Cultural Development Program Awards fund non-profit projects that improve access to culture, invest in organizational capacity, support community creativity and provide historic preservation. More than 60% of Cultural Trust funding (including awards to county and tribal coalitions) is awarded outside of the Portland metro area.
Phase VII at the Liberty Theater will be a new 3,800 square foot structure built as a second story above the new restroom addition. This $880,000 project will expand LTOB’s ability to offer year-round classes and productions for youth and others that will include theater, choreography and play rehearsals. At the same level of the building will be a costume room, changing rooms and toilets for more efficiency. There is an elevator included in the plans which allows accessibility for all.
