Production Equipment Campaigns

The community of Fairlee voted through a public bond to restore the town’s auditorium, located on the second floor of the Fairlee Town Hall. Following a renovation that addressed accessibility issues, including the installation of an elevator, the auditorium was reopened for public use on July 28, 2018.

In order to reach its full potential for use as a community and performance center, the auditorium needs to be outfitted with various production equipment. Specifically, there are three major systems needed:

  1. Sound equipment – speakers, microphones, and associated equipment for use in concerts, lectures, dances, town meeting, and other events
  2. Projection equipment – a projector and screen for use in displaying charts, slides, photos, and other information during presentations, and for showing films
  3. Lighting equipment – appropriate stage lighting and spotlights that can be controlled during concerts, theatrical events, and other presentations

Fairlee Community Arts is taking the lead in raising funds for these essential systems.

Here is an update on the status of these projects.
