Aultsville Theatre moves forward with $300,000 Lighting Upgrade

Cornwall, ON - Aultsville Theatre's Board of directors is thrilled to announce today that they have successfully secured the required funding to proceed with their $306,000 theatrical lighting replacement project. As the project gets underway, the theatre organization is excited to replace the antiquated lighting fixtures with the new industry standard technology. Upgrading the theatrical lighting has been on the theatre's list of improvements for many years now as it has been precariously operating with original lighting fixtures that were well beyond their life's expectancy. The theatre organization expects the new lighting equipment to be installed and in operation by mid-May.

"The theatre board is very thankful for the financial support and contributions from the various individuals, community groups and funding organizations. We can't wait for the community to experience the new lighting and see the improvement for themselves." Felicity Svenson, Aultsville Theatre President. Major contributions to this project are from the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund ($147,873), and the Ontario Trillium Foundation ($84,600). Grant applications were submitted to these funding organizations in the fall of 2017. Other funds for the project were raised through various events and initiatives, generous donations, and community organizations supporting the arts - Cornwall Concert Series, Centennial Choir of Cornwall, and Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise.

"This is a significant improvement to the theatre." says Janet Martel, theatre manager. "Our clients will now have access to state of the art equipment, and our technicians will not have to worry anymore about the stability of the equipment." Aultsville Theatre has been serving the City of Cornwall and surrounding communities since 1976, hosting both touring and professional shows for the benefit of local audiences, and providing a fully-equipped performance venue for local arts and performance groups. For more information on this project or Aultsville Theatre visit or Janet Martel at 613-932-1661 ext. 221.


Aultsville Theatre Board & management accept congratulations from MPP Mr. Jim McDonnell on their successful Ontario Trillium Foundation grant application for their theatrical lighting replacement project.
