The Waldo Theatre is the recent recipient of a $5,000 grant from the Maine Community Foundation’s Theatre Fund. This grant will be used to grow the community theater program at The Waldo and establish a community theater working group to increase access to, and inclusivity in, community theater in the greater Waldoboro area.
“So many community members have fond memories of performing on our stage, or of seeing community theater productions at The Waldo in years past,” said Susan Hodder, The Waldo’s executive director. “This grant will give us the ability to further develop the quantity and quality of our theater offerings, involving more residents and inviting greater participation across all theatrical disciplines.”
The Maine Community Foundation brings people and resources together to build a better Maine through strategic giving, community leadership, personalized service, local expertise and strong investments. To learn more about the foundation, go to mainecf.org.
