Habersham Community Theater To Receive Upgrade

A dozen Georgia theaters and one in Alabama are receiving nearly $480,000 in grants from the Fox Theatre Institute. Of those receiving the grant, Habersham Community Theatre in Clarkesville will receive $48,400 for a project that includes the stabilization of the building’s façade, a potential beam installation and historic brick and stucco repair. 

The FTI program has supported 47 projects totaling more than $1,370,800 in maintenance and physical improvement efforts since launching in 2008, a press release said. 

“The geographical reach and sheer scope of these recipients and their impacted audiences encompasses the Fox Theatre Institute’s commitment to continually engaging new partners to fully maximize our organization’s financial support to other theaters throughout the region,” Leigh Burns, FTI director, said in a statement.
