2020-2021: Rotary Amphitheater 

Armstrong TIFF.tif

CTCC’s 2020 Project of the Year is a local favorite, Community Park’s Rotary Amphitheater. This stage has welcomed hundreds of performers and thousands of fans over its 17-year existence, and it has taken a toll on the facility. Essential for Community Days, free park events and concerts, and event rentals, we knew we had to restore the facility to its full glory. Fundraising for this $300,000 project is ongoing.

The sound of music was replaced by hammers at the Rotary Amphitheater in Community Park in mid-summer. The 17-year old structure underwent the first phases of a major renovation thanks to the Cranberry Township Community Chest, which chose the stage as its Project of the Year for 2020. New electric lines were laid, the roofline was upgraded, and ADA accessibility was improved. A new sound system and upgraded dressing rooms are on the way. Once completed, it will improve the experience for events like Community Days, Movies in the Park and other theater productions. While that work continues, fundraising for the project has only reached intermission. More funding is needed after the invitation to donate was ceased due to the COVID-19 pandemic. CTCC will focus on closing the funding gap in 2021 in lieu of naming a new project of the year.“ This is an important project and has the ability to impact every Township resident, whether they or their families perform on the stage or simply enjoy entertainment from the lawn,” said Wendy Lydon, CTCC Board of Directors. “We want to make sure this community asset continues to be an integral part of our residents’ lives. ”To honor that bond between art and the community, CTCC will construct a Giving Tree on the Amphitheater’s exterior wall. Each leaf of the tree can be sponsored, whether it be in memory of someone or from a family who has spent many summer nights enjoying the space.
