In response to Draper Historic Theatre’s plea for renovation help, many Draper community members have donated their time and resources, including local roofing, paving and paint businesses, church groups and Boy Scout troops.

Draper Youth Councilmember James Gardner along with friends and family, raised $600 to use toward bathroom and lobby repairs as part of his Eagle Scout project.

“We really appreciate all of those who have provided outside cleanup and demolition, new gravel, fencing and an asphalt walkway along the side of the building,” DHT Board Member Colleen Eldridge said. “We still desperately need plastering and wood repair done on the outside of the building, as well as several other projects.”  DHT’s board of directors is asking for physical help as well as financial or materials donations.

“A small building was donated to store props in the back, and we could really use help moving items into this storage area,” Eldridge said. “We are looking forward to making this facility more usable for the community.”  Future plans for the theatre include a classroom to expand upon their performing arts curriculum, as well as late-night nostalgic movie showings.
