Olney Theatre Unveils New Lobby Design
After four weeks of construction, County Executive Ike Leggett joined leaders from the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County and Olney Theatre staff for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil the theatre’s new lobby.
Designed by Inscape Studios, staff said visitors will have now have the chance to enjoy more open space.
“This has more of a contemporary feel to the space so it’s a lot more welcoming, interactive and user friendly,” Debbie Ellinghaus, managing director of Olney Theatre said.
The renovations costed roughly $400,000 and was funded by a grant from the State of Maryland, the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County and community donations.
“It really says to the community that we are a world class regional theatre,” Ellinghaus said.
