“It’s a wonderful opportunity” Todd says, “It will give us a chance to expand our lobby area expand our bathrooms, prop and costume storage which is all sorely need.”
However, even though they have the building. There is still testing that needs to be done in just how compatible the two buildings will be in making them coexist. Moreover, no matter the plan, the integrity and foundation of the Atlas Theatre will have to remain intact. Currently, they are in the process of planning. With the second issue then being funding.
