The auditorium renovation is complete and the cherry on top is the updated lobby and the refreshed box office. On 11-2-17, we welcomed back major donors, the Schoenberger family and the Chizer family to cut the ribbon and officially open the box office for the first theatrical performance of the school year, Romeo and Juliet.

Orchestra members entertained guests with their musical stylings as a crowd gathered. Michael Buchert played the bagpipes, IHARC chairman Mary Stone shared a few words and Mr. Lew Chizer shared some Ginny stories before he and his daughter Cheri cut the ribbon! It was a wonderful celebration.

The Schoenberger family honored the life of their son Edward with a generous gift to name the stage after him. They were honored before the second half of the show, watching from the front row. It was great to have their entire family in attendance.

We are so thankful to all of our donors, community, staff, students and alumni who also contributed to the project and purchased seats (still available >>>> https://www.ohlsd.us/…/ione-holt-audi…/sponsor-a-seat%21-98/).

Thank you!
