$225,000 Renovation Set for Meridian Theatre

First Union Theatre plans

Albright has received two major gifts launching the $225,000 renovation of Meridian Theatre in the Center for the Arts. A gift of $100,000 from Wachovia Foundation will rename the theatre Wachovia Theatre. A $25,000 gift has been made by the Wyomissing Foundation for the project.

An estimated 12,000 people attend events in Wachovia Theatre annually. In a typical year, Albright presents our own Domino Players productions, the Albright Performing Arts and Concert Series, the Leo Camp Lecture Series, numerous student recitals, and many other Experience events.

A multitude of regional community events are also presented in the theatre throughout the year, such as performances of the Berks JazzFest, lectures by the Pennsylvania Herbal Society and the local United Methodist Church Conference, and plays produced by the Hispanic Center of Reading.
For a gift of $500 donors may “name” a seat in the new theatre for themselves or in honor of a loved one or special Albrightian.

For information about the theatre renovation project, or to make a gift, contact Janice Johnson Luck ’96, director of special gifts, at 610-921-7653 or e-mail
