Commissioner Kathy Hillis says about 3 years ago the Nevada Theatre Commission worked with KVMR to connect KVMR’s new building with the back side of the Nevada Theatre.
The result was a new back stage area that has opened the Theatre to handle much larger productions, like Sierra Stages recent showing of The Producers.

Commissioner Ron Spiller says another improvement for the audience is all new seating throughout the theatre.
