Belfry Theatre in Victoria, BC, will launch a $1 million renovation and restoration of the 104-year-old former church that serves as its Mainstage (the Stewart Theatre).

A $470,000 grant from the Canadian and provincial governments, plus donations from foundations, corporations and individuals, will pay for the overhaul, scheduled to start in May 1996. The project will bring the building in line with city building codes, plus will upgrade heating and seating.

Belfry has operated in the former Spring Ridge Emmanuel Baptist Church since 1977.
