Mayor Bill Collins cuts the ribbon of the newly renovated James F. Dean Community Theater.

With a crowd of financial supporters to the James F. Dean Community Theatre Exterior Renovation Project, Mayor Bill Collins cut the ribbon to the new marquee. Immediately following, the lights were officially turned on. Mayor Collins spoke briefly about the importance of this organization to the community and how he had a small part in the very first play The Flowertown Players did back in 1976.

Renovating the exterior of the theatre has been in process for more than three years. Not only does the building welcome a newly designed marquee, but a fresh coat of paint trimmed in tuxedo with a stage door red entranceway and underside of the marquee. The two forme square windows on the second floor will have permanently fixed shutters similar to the ones in the 1935 design.

The theatre could not have accomplished these improvements without the support of the Mayor and Town Council, the Junior Service League, 2012 Annual Gift Campaign, private donations, and the support of businesses and citizens.

The lights came on in time to welcome the newest production at the theater, “Catfish Moon” a southernfried comedy about three friends and the trials and tribulations of life.
