Energy company shows support for popular live theatre organization

After cancelling the 2020 season due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Souris Valley Theatre (SVT) has decided to undertake some much-needed capital improvements.

The work being done includes the replacement of the roofing on both the main theatre building, known as Frehlick Hall, and one of the on-site actor accommodations.

“This was work that has been needed to be done for a few years now, but unfortunately it had to be put off due to budgetary restrictions” said SVT president Robert Godfrey. “Earlier this year we were made aware of and applied for a grant opportunity through Kingston Midstream and the Richardson Foundation that provided $20,000 to complete the repairs.”

A donation from Kingston Midstream will help with these renovations, and see the company become the naming partner for the 2021 season.

“This was a great opportunity for us to help support the arts in Estevan while also supporting the local economy, especially during these times,” said Becky Cassidy, Kingston Midstream advisor of external relations.

“Through the Richardson Foundation, Kingston Midstream provides funding to organizations that enrich the lives of the people in the communities served by James Richardson & Sons, Limited and its affiliate companies. Visual and performing arts is a pillar of the foundation, so Souris Valley Theatre was a great fit.”

The work is expected to be completed in the coming months and will be utilizing the services of local contractors.
