It’s All in the Details!

Brian Sullivan, owner of A Master’s Touch refinishing and restoration business in Monroe, recently donated his shop’s services to restore the interior stairway handrails at the Wagner Performing Arts Center. He and his crew peeled away many layers of ugly paint to reveal the natural beauty of the old fir handrails, which are now clear coated in a beautiful, durable satin finish. We believe the wood was very likely from the old Wagner mill.  “You couldn’t replace wood like this today,” said Brian when we brought the railings to him. We thank Brian for his donation!

Work Party at the Wagner

Volunteers, you outdid yourselves! Saturday’s work party was the best one yet.  Our members showed up in force, but we were really bowled over when some non-members also unexpectedly showed up to pitch in!  

So. Much. Done.  

Walls patched and paint touched up. 
Cobwebs cleared from proscenium arch.
Stage storage room completely reorganized. 
Surplus equipment donated. 
Aisle carpets shampooed.
Broken door-closers repaired – no more slamming! 
Portico light fixtures taken down and cleaned out.
Light bulbs replaced with bright, energy-efficient LED’s. 

THANK YOU to everyone who helped show the Wagner a little love!



December 2018

A Month of Great Holiday Entertainment

December was a terrific month at the Wagner Performing Arts Center.  

First, Sky Performing Arts brought us two full weekends of the hilarious and beloved A Christmas Story – complete with the legendary leg lamp, a misbehaving furnace,  and even a tongue frozen to a lamppost.  

Next, the Monroe Concert Band brought the holiday spirit to musical life with a A Joyous Christmas, their final concert of 2018. What a celebration of the season!  

Finally, Cascade Community Theater presented a wonderful production of Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, the timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir. 

Watch for a similar lineup in December 2019.  It’s a great way to get in the holiday spirit!
