The Milton Theatre in Milton, DE, has new owners

The long wait is over and it does appear that a local couple in Milton has a contract to purchase the Milton Theatre. Located in the heart of town, the historic theatre has hosted live theatre, musical performances, local events and town activities but for more than a year it has been dark.

What a perfect time for this to happen since Milton is on the move. The community of Heritage Creek is booming and Wagamons West Shore is now home to new models from Schell Brothers. With more new families and retirees moving into Milton, the re-opening of the Milton Theatre will be exciting news.

Lisa confirmed this week that she and Glenn have signed a contract to buy the theater. We've entered into a contract, but the deal is not complete. No dollars have changed hands. But we sure do hope it goes through. It's a dream and a good idea but we don't own it yet.

Lisa said the couple plans to keep the theater as a theater. The first thing we want to do is set up a board of directors to help us with the various aspects of running a theater. We live here. We're raising our family here. We want Milton to thrive. Hopefully we can find members for the board who can bring a good sense of the business side of theater and help us with the theatrical side of things. Of course Glenn brings construction knowledge.
