Drive past the Manatee Players current home and you'll see a big "thermometer" sign hanging from the side of its Riverfront Theater. The sign will keep track of the troupe's capital campaign fundraising program for its state-of-the-art theater, just blocks away on Third Avenue West. Money is needed to help complete the building. As more fundraising dollars come in, the thermometer will rise.
If you would like to see it keep rising, contact Janene Witham, capital development director at 749-1111 for details on how you can help.
