Fairfield Theatre Company celebrates opening of The Warehouse

On Feb. 12, the Fairfield Theatre Company held a formal celebration to thank supporters, donors and local businesses for their help in building their new performing arts venue, The Warehouse.

FTC raised more than $1.5 million to build The Warehouse, opening the 640 capacity in September to great acclaim. More than 600 individuals and businesses contributed to the campaign. The Warehouse celebration was headlined by the popular 80s new wave group Tom Tom Club. Founders Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, local Fairfield residents and members of the Rock Hall of Fame as members of the Talking Heads, orchestrated a reunion of their seminal band specifically to support this historic event.

The celebration was attended by many local VIPs including US Senator Chris Murphy, State Senator Tony Hwang,  State Representatives Brenda Kupchick and Cristin McCarthy-Vahey and Fairfield First Selectman Mike Tetreau.

The event was sponsored by Bankwell, the Fairfield county based community bank that serves the banking and lending needs of businesses and consumers throughout Connecticut. Bankwell is the banking partner of the Fairfield Theatre Company and they provided important support and expertise in the financing of The Warehouse. They are also a Season Sponsor of FTC and their Bankwell Live Well Concert Series helps bring world renowned musical talent to the area.

“Bankwell has been a critically important partner for FTC, providing financing and expertise that has helped us build the Warehouse and operate more efficiently as a nonprofit business, said John Reid, executive director of FTC. “We were proud to have them as our sponsor of the official Warehouse Celebration.”
