The Citadel Theatre in Lake Forest announced that it has finalized lease negotiations to move into a new theatre space in the Lake Forest High School's West Campus. Renovations are already underway to transform one of the existing lecture halls into a professional theatre space that can accomodate 150 patrons, doubling Citadel's current capacity at Gorton Center. Citadel has been performing in the Grotto at Gorton Center for the past seven years. A capital campaign has been launched to cover renovations in the new space.
Citadel plans to kickoff the 2010-11 season in the new space with a November production of The Boarding House by local playwright Ann Noble. To learn more about Citadel Theatre or to make a donation to the New Theatre Capital Campaign visit www.citadeltheatre.org or call 847-735-8554.
