SWITG “WISH LIST”
SWITG strives to keep our ticket prices as low as possible so that just about anyone can afford to attend our productions. However, ticket funds barely cover our general operating expenses. When it comes to updating our equipment and facility, we must depend on other sources and the generosity of our patrons. Some of the items we currently have on our “wish list” include but are not limited to the following:
  • new landscaping
  • partial covered awning with facility sign on lobby walk-way entrance
  • new carpet
  • new Rose Garden ceiling tiles
  • Rose Garden permanent wiring for lighting
  • paved parking lot outside of auditorium
  • new sound system
If you would like to help fulfill one of our “wishes”, or donate toward a particular item, please send your donation to: SWITG P.O. Box 212 Shenandoah, IA 51601


ROSE GARDEN LANDSCAPING

As a result of a bad foundation, beyond repair, the Rose Garden patio had to be torn down. Plans are to landscape as money allows, along the perimeter of the area. It is our wish to someday build an outdoor stage. In the meantime, concerts and other like events could take place in this wonderful open space. If you are willing to donate landscaping materials or time, contact: SWITG President
