The Waldo Theatre in Waldoboro, which has been closed since 2014 and under renovation, has completed the “Open the Doors” capital campaign, exceeding the fundraising goal.

In recent months, volunteers have continued to safely work on the building, replacing acoustic panels and fabrics, replacing old upholstery on theater seats and installing stage lighting in time to launch a new three-camera live-streaming system.

Virtual programming will continue this spring, with safety protocols in place for artists, technical staff and volunteers. As soon as it is safe to do so, The Waldo will offer theater and music, films, dance and community events for live audiences. A new membership program is planned.
