Signs and Sockets and Safety Oh My!

A fundraising campaign for New Hampshire Theatre Project

After 15 years of non-stop performances, workshops, concerts and camps, our intimate space on Islington Street is in need of some Home Improvement. We have finally gotten permission to replace the raggedy banner out on the street with a real sign! With some encouragement from the Portsmouth Fire Department, we are investing in some electrical and safety upgrades backstage. And we'd like to give the lobby a fresh look and make it a more comfortable space for our patrons. Please help New Hampshire Theatre Project light up the holidays and celebrate in a happy home!!
