The non-profit Indian Lake Theater has been awarded $50,000 from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) to support the theater’s sign and marquee project. This grant is part of a record capital project funding announcement by NYSCA, which totals over $42 million to 144 capital projects across New York State.

“The Indian Lake Theater has been working to improve the current sign and marquee for almost 10 years,” said Terry DeArmas, Indian Lake Theater Board of Directors President. “This improvement will raise the visibility of the Theater and increase patronage of Theater events.
