BLAIR COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) – WTAJ’s parent company, Nexstar celebrated its 25th anniversary through an annual give-back event known as Founder’s Day of Caring on June 17.
This year, WTAJ worked from inside the Altoona Community Theatre. These volunteer efforts helped the theatre prepare for its upcoming season beginning in September.
After a year without live performances, patrons are looking forward to attending live shows again. “We did a survey and people were really missing live theatre and live events. We just got some great comments about we missed the theatre. We’re really looking forward to them,” Director of Operations, Tara Enedy said.
The first task of the day was to protect the costumes from damaged walls. Additional wall repairs will be made along with drywall patching on the staircases. As for things that needed to be organized and cleaned, the team of volunteers focused on the basement and the main wardrobe area.
The Altoona Community Theatre is always looking for volunteers and sign-up is available on their website.
