Tom Winters is asking for your help to restore Matesich Theatre.Dear Friends, 

I want to thank the hundreds of individual and corporate donors who helped us achieve our goal of raising $1 million to refurbish our historic Sr. Mary Andrew Matesich, OP Theatre. Over the past five years, the theater has undergone quite a transformation – the seats, carpet and stage curtain have been replaced; the exterior walls and roof have been strengthened; the intricate wood and plasterwork have been restored, and the stage lighting and audio and visual equipment have been upgraded. And that’s just getting started.

For 90 years, our beloved theater hosted events and individuals that have educated, entertained, inspired and amazed us: world-renown poets, playwrights, journalists, authors, and so many more. Because of the generosity of our donors, this beloved venue will shine for many years to come, while continuing to serve as a valuable campus and community asset.

While dust from the project has settled and been swept up, I invite you to consider purchasing a seat for $750 to support the ongoing needs of our theater so future generations can enjoy it for many years to come. Your seat can be in honor of a professor, family member or friend – anyone that has had a positive impact on your life. 

Thank you for your support; and I hope you will take the time to visit the theater the next time you visit campus.
