QUINCY — The Washington Theater Commission invites community members to share their insights and perspectives by completing an online survey to help shape the future direction of the theater.

Jim Lawrence of the Washington Theater Commission and Maggie Strong of Strong Consulting talk to MRN’s J. Robert Gough about the survey and the facility’s future.

The commission recognizes the importance of involving the public and gathering their thoughts, perspectives, suggestions and priorities. The data collected will inform the organization’s strategic plan and programming for the coming years.

The Washington Theater first opened in 1924 and was designed by renowned Chicago architect Edward P. Rupert. The Washington Theater Redevelopment Commission was created in 2003 with the purpose of bringing the historic theater back to life as a vital modern, multi-purpose entertainment hub while preserving the beauty and historical character that is the Washington Theater.

Maggie Strong of Strong Consulting is leading and facilitating the development of the organization’s strategic plan. This move reflects the theater’s commitment to enrich the quality of life in the region by restoring the historic venue and presenting events for the enjoyment of area residents.

The Washington Theater Commission anticipates the survey results will provide valuable insights that will inform strategic planning, program development and community engagement efforts.
