|The new SWNW marquee goes up.|
The new signage pays homage to the original motion picture theater's marquee that was originally housed in the building with a few modifications. The new sign includes the theater company's name.
The lighting ceremony featured musical performances from some of SWNW's recent shows sung by the players. Songs from 'The Secret Garden', 'The Great American Trailer Park Musical', and '9 to 5 The Musical' were performed.

There are challenges to the space, such as no backstage area. Dressing rooms are in the balcony as are the restrooms. But these issues will be overcome in time.
For now there is much to celebrate--a theater, with its own space, is thriving in Southwest Washington!
