Performing Arts Center To Undergo Refurbishment

The curtain will be closed in preparation for the center's15th anniversary season.

The Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center has announced on its Facebook page that the center will be closing for a renovation project.

"The WHBPAC will be 'closing the curtain' for a while as our venue undergoes a major refurbishment in preparation for the 15th anniversary season," read the Facebook status update.

According to an article published on 27east and posted on PAC's website, Clare Bisceglia, executive director of PAC, kicked off the project on her ten-year anniversary as executive director by creating a fund to raise $250,000 for the project.

With the money in hand, the theatre will be revamped with new paint, the refinishing of the stage floor, new carpeting and a new lighting system for the main lobby and hall.

All renovations are expected to be completed during January with the doors to the theatre re-opening on Feb. 5 with a children's performance of We're Going on a Bearhunt, followed in March by the theatre's annual world cinema film series.

A 15th anniversary celebration will commence in the summer — a line up of performances is expected to be announced over the next several months.
