Burton visits new Winni Playhouse complex

MEREDITH — Executive Councilor Ray Burton visited The Winnipesaukee Playhouse's new theater campus.

Though Burton had visited the campus several times over the past few years, this was the first time he had visited since the building was completed in June.

Burton, who has supported the Playhouse with a donation to its capital campaign, toured the four levels of the theater, including the lighting catwalks, dressing rooms and costume storage where he and the Playhouse's Chairman, Christopher Boothby paused to try on some hats.

"We are so pleased that Councilor Burton took the time to visit us," Boothby remarked. "With such an ambitious project, it's wonderful to have the support of so many individuals, both on the local and state level."

Before attending a show, Burton had dinner at the theater provided by Magic Foods Restaurant Group, the Playhouse's catering partner.

"I really can't think of another theater in the state with this level of amenities for their guests. It is truly a unique experience to visit the campus and enjoy all that it has to offer," said Burton. "I was pleased to be able to support the Playhouse and encourage others to continue to support both the theater itself and the wonderful educational opportunities it brings to the local community."
