Here’s a summary that probably doesn’t capture everything that’s going on at ‘The HERTH.’
- Responding to a request from the Elk Rapids Players to fix the stage ceiling, the HERTHA Building Committee has removed extraneous wood, discovered and archived an historic hand-painted scenery drop, removed nails, screws and staples and prepared the ceiling for painting.
- The Elk Rapids Players are now painting the stage ceiling black.
- The HERTHA Interior Decorating Committee met at the hall to discuss a comprehensive decorating plan and specifically the window treatments and seating.
Future projects include hanging new supports for the theater lights, creating the costumes and scenery, as well as rehearsing for Moon Over Buffalo, which opens the end of April. And all this goes on with every intention of not disrupting the day-to-day use of the building.
