Midwest Theater hosting strategic planning and annual meeting

January 24, 2017 GMT

Having just celebrated the 70th anniversary of the Midwest Theater, Friends of the Midwest Theater is soliciting input in a strategic planning process to ensure the organization’s success for another 70 years.

A community forum on Wednesday, Jan. 25 from 12:30 to 4 p.m. at the Midwest Theater, 1707 Broadway in Scottsbluff, will support the organization’s strategic plan. Feedback is also being gathered via an online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CMLCP6C.

Midwest Theater Executive Director Billy Estes encourages theater members, patrons and interested community members to participate in the theater’s future by attending the strategic planning session, completing the online survey, or both.

“The Midwest Theater is a community theater. We want to make sure that we are meeting the needs and expectations of our community,” Estes said. “We’d really like to know how our community sees the Midwest Theater growing into the future.”

Following the community forum, the Friends of the Midwest Theater will hold its annual meeting at the theater, at 5:30 p.m. The annual meeting is an opportunity for theater members and community members to meet Friends of the Midwest Theater board members and learn about the past year’s operations and upcoming plans for the theater.

Everyone is invited to attend.
