Giving Tree Theater Ribbon Cutting
August 2 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Giving Tree Theater to Celebrate New Ownership,
Opening Night of The Mousetrap
Jamie and Andrea Henley will celebrate their recent acquisition of Giving Tree Theater on Friday, August 2 at 4:00 p.m., just ahead of opening night of The Mousetrap. Chamber Ambassadors will assist with a ribbon cutting.
The couple purchased the business following an announcement that previous owners, Richie and Heather Akers, would be relocating out of state. They have both had a passion for theater since high school and have continued to be involved with their family.
“Jamie and I are excited to share our love of theater with the community, as well as to be a part of the vibrant Uptown Marion District,” said Andrea.
While the cozy seats are remaining the same, the Henleys have already begun to introduce more youth programming including summers camps over the past few weeks.
Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap will be the Henley’s first production on their own. The murder mystery involves a group of strangers stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The show will run August 2-25. Tickets are available at givingtreetheater.com. Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest will follow in September.
