We have been given a look inside the beginnings of “The Addy,” a project of Proctors Theater that Stewart’s Shops has helped support. It is located in the Carl Company building and will include a theater, media room and other classroom and rehearsal areas. Students of the Empire State Youth Orchestra’s CHIME program will be among those using the space.
“Addy” is short for the Adeline Graham Theatrical Training and Innovation Center. Adeline Graham was a former director of Proctors Theater.
Stewart’s Shops and the Dake Family Foundations contributed $250,000 to the project as part of our continuing commitment to give back to our communities.
