NFCT Building on Tradition Campaign

We thank our donors for supporting the NFCT’s ongoing Building On Tradition Campaign.

The NFCT has performed in our historic 1830 building, which was originally a church, for well over 50 years. For decades we rented the building from Mattituck Presbyterian Church and when our lease was about to run out, we started a Building on Tradition fundraising campaign to purchase the theater building. The community responded favorably and we were able to raise $500,000 to buy the building in 2012.

In 2013 we started the renovation phase of the campaign. We have completed over $100,000 of renovations on the exterior and infrastructure of the NFCT, including the repair of century-old stained glass windows, a new prop shed, a new porch and an improved septic system. With the help of a professional theater architecture firm, we have developed long-range plans for renovating the building’s interior, including technical enhancements to sound, lighting and the stage. Work began in August 2018 on improvements to the stage and backstage area, including the addition of an orchestra pit and a new downstairs rehearsal room.

Emilie and Michael Corey generously matched $300,000 in donations as of December 31, 2015. We thank the Coreys and all our donors for their support.
