COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont theater company is preparing to open a $6.3 million second stage and community center.

Vermont Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/2hv2W6v ) the 8,000-square-foot Weston Playhouse will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday.

Lesley Koenig, managing director of the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company, says the stage is like a “wooden jewel box.” The stage can seat up to 150 people.

The company housed productions in a former church, but Koenig says it became too expensive to heat the building during the winter. She says they will continue to hold performances there in the summer.

Koenig says the new stage will be open to the public when it is not being used by the theatre company.
