Westport Country Playhouse Sets Jan. 12 for Groundbreaking

The Westport Country Playhouse has set Jan. 12 for the groundbreaking ceremony for work on its renovation and expansion project.

The 2 p.m. ceremony will be held in a heated tent and include speeches by Playhouse officials, including Joanne Woodward, artistic director, and Bob Wright, chairman and CEO, NBC, and vice chairman, GE, and Playhouse campaign chair.

The Playhouse hopes to raise $30.5 million in its comprehensive campaign to remodel the legendary Playhouse as well as create an endowment and support artistic and educational initiatives.

Of the total campaign goal, $17.3 million is designated for the theatre renovation project. The fundraising effort, called “The Campaign for a New Era,” is well underway, having raised almost $21 million to date.

The Playhouse will temporarily relocate its 2004 summer season to the Ridgefield Playhouse while construction takes place. It will reopen in 2005, its 75th anniversary year.
