BLAIR COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) – WTAJ’s parent company, Nexstar is celebrating its 25th anniversary through an annual give-back event known as Founder’s Day of Caring on June 17.
This year, Altoona Community Theatre has been selected as the organization in which WTAJ staff members will volunteer their time. Since the theatre’s season of live performances begins in September, theatre officials are grateful for the assistance.
Director of Operations, Tara Enedy, says help is needed organizing the basement and wardrobe room. Since the building was constructed in 1905, she also says the walls will need repair work.
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,” Enedy said.
The Altoona Community Theatre is always looking for volunteers and sign-up is available on their website.
