Venice Theatre's restoration on track

VENICE — Nearly a year after Hurricane Ian's arrival, costs mount on the restoration of Venice Theatre's main stage.

"Since the storm, we have raised $3.2 million," said Eric Watters, the theater's director of development. "That included an initial matching grant of $500,000 from the board and another $500,000 from the Gulf Coast Community Foundation to fund the theater's payroll for its 28 employees."
