Thomaston Savings Bank recently donated $15,000 to Landmark Community Theater (LCT) to support its upcoming season at Thomaston Opera House. The Thomaston Opera House was built in 1884 and serves as a cultural and recreational center for the city and surrounding communities.
“We are thrilled to give back to Landmark Community Theatre. We are proud to support the arts and operations of historic opera, contributing to the economic development of our community and surrounding areas. said Stephen L. Lewis, President and CEO, Thomaston Savings Bank.
Currently, the Opera hosts multiple artistic and cultural events serving 15,000 to 18,000 customers per year. Artistic and cultural opportunities are an integral part of all great communities. Over the past 50 years, the community has come together to protect and restore this building, believing that architecture itself is an art form, an example of our history and culture locally and nationally.
“We look forward to facilitating and completing the restoration of the Opera. The proposed project will create a state-of-the-art performance hall while restoring a treasured historical monument. This will in turn increase tourism, support our local and regional economies, and inspire pride in Connecticut’s unique architecture. We are very grateful for the support from Thomaston Savings Bank and the community. explained Jeff Dunn, General Manager of Landmark Community Theatre.
