There’s a new theater in town.The Solano Community College Performing Arts Center is ready for its debut with a grand opening gala Sept. 9.
The multimillion dollar renovation and expansion took about two years. It was funded by voter-approved Measure Q and a statewide education bond.
“It’s just fabulous,” said Darcia Tipton, Solano College Theatre’s theater technician. “I’m still pinching myself.”
For the past two years, she searched various campus buildings for theater production props that were held in a makeshift studio inside the college’s student services building. Tipton has worked at the theater for more than 25 years.
