Maryland Theatre gets $7,500 grant

November 15, 1998

The Maryland Theatre has received $7,500 from the Samuel Freeman Charitable Trust, officials said.

The money was used to buy microphones, enhance the sound system and install new lighting in the archways in front of the 21 S. Potomac St. theater, said Pat Wolford, the theater board's president.

Theater officials decided to install lights in the archways for the first time to enhance the theater's front and for security, Wolford said.

Last year the theater received $5,000 from the trust to buy new curtains for the box seats, Wolford said.

Hilton Smith, a trustee for the New York-based trust, said the trust has supported the theater for about 15 years.

"We think it's a wonderful treasure," Smith said.

Smith said trust officials expect to always support the theater, which needs private funding to survive.
