“We’re very thankful to our community partners, including NHTrust,” said Alec Doyle, Executive Director, The Colonial Performing Arts Center. “This project will be extraordinarily beneficial to our region for a long time to come. With our new SHOWROOM now complete, the community will have a fantastic multipurpose venue for events while construction continues on our main theatre over the coming year. When both stages are completed, The Colonial will play a significant role in re-energizing our entire community once the health care crisis ends.”
