The Marblehead Little Theater is looking to local residents to help match a grant they received toward the installation of second floor bathrooms.
The Marblehead Little Theatre recently received a competitive Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund grant of $13,750 to construct two second floor bathrooms - and now they are looking for help from the local residents to match that amount. This is the second MCFF/MassDevelopment grant awarded to the Little Theatre. The first – for $60,000 - was awarded in 2009 to help fund the construction of the three-stop elevator that allowed the theatre to open up the upper floors of the building.

The investment has resulted in "the three-story, 6…

According to the theatre's Board Chairman Charles Gessner, Daly modeled the piece in clay and then enlarged it through bronze casting. The vestibule has been left open so that Daly's …
