Embassy video highlights renovation project and the challenges of working in a busy venue
(July 29, 2015) – A new video which focuses on construction taking place in a busy venue is being released by the Embassy Theatre as part of its documentation and communications plan for the Vision for the Embassy project.
This is the second video in a series that will record the historic renovation project, which began the summer of 2014 in the former Indiana Hotel at the Embassy and will be completed in early spring 2016.
The Embassy contracted with Punch Films for this work and the videos are sponsored by Weigand Construction, which also is the construction firm for the Vision project. The first video, also available on the Embassy’s website, highlights the challenges of construction in a historic facility.
“Much of the second video was filmed during the April 2015 week of Jersey Boys with eight semi-loads of set, costumes and cast in our building for eight performances,” said Kelly Updike, Embassy executive director. “This was an added challenge for Weigand, which adjusted its work schedule in order to stay on time with the project.”
The Vision for the Embassy campaign has raised $7.68 million with an ultimate goal of $10 million. If you would like to contribute to this project or are interested in naming rights to new spaces, contact Steve Linsenmayer, development director, at 260.424.6287, ext. 240.
