The Silverthorne Theatre located in the Administrative Building is receiving a major upgrade this summer and fall of 2014. The Idaho Division of Public Works allocated $690,000 from the FY2014 Permanent Building Fund to upgrade the theater and additional funds of $160,000 will be provided by Lewis-Clark State College. The upgrade will include new windows, lighting, main stage, balcony area, seating and additional outside entrance to the west side of the theater (to include ADA access, and loading dock for the stage).
Much of the funding is already taken care of but funds are still needed to upgrade the theater's lighting and curtains. You can be a big part of this project by adopting a seat for $200. When you adopt a seat, a name plate will be placed on that seat. The first production in the newly renovated theater is the 1940's Radio Hour with performances on March 25 - 29, 2015. For more information contact the College Advancement office.
