Sioux City (KTIV) - LAMB Theatre is trying to renovate a piece of history in downtown Sioux City, and this Saturday raised funds to help reach that goal.
The event was called "Broadway Inside Out", and featured singing and dancing by members of the LAMB Regional Arts team.
It's all part of a push to raise money for a new LAMB Arts theatre in Sioux City.
They hope to renovate the building at 625 Douglas Street, which used to be an auditorium and TV station.
Russell Wooley, co-founder of LAMB Theatre, says the building has a lot of history.
"That was the first auditorium for Sioux City," says Russell Wooley, Executive Director and co-founder of LAMB Regional Arts Theatre. "It served the entire region with top notch entertainment, and when we restore that to the center of downtown, the way it was, it's going to be amazing."
Wooley says they need around 17 million dollars to fund the renovation of the new building.
All the money raised today was doubled thanks to a grant from the Gilcrest Foundation.
Wooley also says they have more fundraising events planned for the future.
