Great news! We heard your feedback on audience surveys and we agree: Our theatre seats need improvement! So over the summer, we are sending them off to be revamped and restored. Come this fall, our newly rejuvenated seating will keep you comfortable through the seasons to come!
By restoring our seats we preserve our history and lessen our environmental impact. Did you know that our seats were reclaimed from the beloved Portland Civic Theatre and are at least 65 years old? The current arrangement helps create an intimate environment, rich in history and tradition, and the restoration will preserve this atmosphere with added comfort.
Improvements to the theatre seating are actually part of a larger enterprise that will enhance lighting and sound in the Milagro Theatre and continue to develop El Zócalo, El Centro Milagro’s new space designated for community use. These enrichments will carry forward our vision of a cultural and artistic epicenter for community artists and audiences alike.
Production Manager Estela Robinson and her cadre of volunteers have temporarily removed the seats and are ready to dispose of the well-worn carpet. The seat cushions are now in the hands of the upholsterer, the carpet layer is on call and José has his paint sprayer ready to tackle the frames.
What’s left? You name it! No, seriously, this is where you can pick your favorite seat and for a $250 donation, we’ll affix a shiny new brass plate engraved with your name, the name of a loved one — or even your favorite Latino icon!
Your help at this juncture will contribute to the health of our organization while bringing the gift of restored seating for all to enjoy. This is a special occasion to make improvements to our home and be a part of creating Milagro history!
