Schoolhouse Foundation overwhelmingly approves merger with BIG ARTS

By Staff | Apr 30, 2010

At the special meeting of members held on Friday at The Herb Strauss Schoolhouse Theater, the proposal to join with BIG ARTS was approved by a 126-2 vote.

Steve Klug, president of the Foundation, thanked all of those who voted and especially the members of the Foundation’s Board of Directors for all their hard work.

“This isn’t the end, but rather the beginning, of a new and hopefully very successful chapter in the history of live theater on Sanibel,” said Klug, who added, “the continued financial support, volunteer work, and attendance at the theater of all our supporters will be vital to ensuring the future success of live theater.”

The Schoolhouse kicks off its summer season on May 29 with “80s To The Max” and will follow that up on June 26 with “The 70s Show.”

“80s To The Max” will play Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights through June 24 and will then play on Tuesdays and Thursdays only until it closes August 12.

“The 70s Show” will run Wednesday and Saturday nights through August 14.

All performances are at 7 p.m. Special summer ticket prices are available. Call the box office at 472-6862 for tickets. The Herb Strauss Schoolhouse Theater is located at 2200 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel.
