CONYERS — Conyers Rockdale Council for the Arts and Fox Theatre Institute (FTI) jointly hosted a ceremony Wednesday to celebrate the rejuvenation of the theater accomplished through an Urgent/Emergency Needs Grant awarded to CRCA last fall. Following comments by CRCA Executive Director Shelli Siebert and Conyers Mayor Vince Evans, FTI Director Leigh Burns presented Siebert with the symbolic “big check.” Afterwards, the cast of the show “Twelve of His Master’s Voice School of Music” performed “Today” from their upcoming performance in the CRCA Theater.

After the ceremony, attendees — including State Reps. Doreen Carter and Rhonda Taylor and Conyers Civic League representatives Sue Troff, Mary Ann Robinson, and Beth Andersen — were able to view the much-needed upgrades to the theater restrooms. Also in attendance were CRCA board members Jennifer Baker, Jamie Cabe, Derwin Daniels, Bryan Hilburn, Brad Smith and Morgan Tabb.

“CRCA and all the performing arts organizations in Georgia are extremely fortunate to have the leadership and support of the Fox Theatre Institute and the Fox Theatre,” said Siebert. “While the bathroom renovations in the CRCA Theater were completed last November, I appreciate the opportunity to celebrate our historic theater and the community we are a part of.”
