Aware how fortunate they are to have their own theater, the group is constantly making improvements and upgrades to the facility. Recent improvements have included major roof repairs, a new, more efficient furnace, upgraded wiring, a catwalk for installing and operating lighting instruments, a new air conditioning system, and installation of seats donated by General Cinema. In 2007, they completed a major renovation of the lobby to build new restrooms and add a fully accessible bathroom. In 2012, the group received a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund to install a sprinkler system.The group's costume loft contains a fine collection from various periods.
But when a community theater group not only survives, but flourishes for over 90 years, it's the people who have made the difference. The group is further supported by a loyal group of subscribers from Walpole - and throughout New England - who make this record possible. In honor of "The Original Thirteen," the Town of Walpole has proclaimed April 13th as "Walpole Footlighters Day" in perpetuity, as Footlighters members, patrons and friends look ahead to the centennial in 2024.
