Last night the Town Board voted to accept the Offer of Dedication of the Wallace Auditorium! We can now work with residents who are interested in making private donations and can make the necessary capital improvements to make this venue an incredible asset for the community. I would like to thank the members of the New Castle Arts & Culture Committee for their work since October of last year. I would also like to thank Jill Shapiro, our Town Administrator, Rob Deary, our comptroller, Bill Maskiell, our Building Inspector, and Bob Snyder, our Superintendent of Recreation & Parks, for their hard work to gather the information over the past year.

I am so excited to be able to offer this fabulous amenity to our community! To book the Wallace Auditorium please email bookwallace@mynewcastle.org.

However, our work is not limited to the Wallace Auditorium. The mission of the New Castle Arts & Culture Committee is to develop, propose and raise awareness of events and programs on art, music, dance, theatre, film and all other cultural art forms taking place in and around the Town of New Castle. I am thrilled to announce that on Friday, August 5 at 6:00pm, the LawnChair Theater will present Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night at the Rec Field. This abridged version of the play is approximately two hours long. Bring a blanket or a chair and have a picnic dinner while watching the play. Food will be made available for purchase.
