In 1999 everything changed for the building when the non profit Milton Development Corp. bought the property and ran it with performing arts and many other functions. The building was lost to foreclosure after 10 years.
Currently the Milton Theatre organization is serving its mission to bring back theatre to the Milton Area, the membership is stronger than ever and they are on schedule to revamp the theatre and hopefully but the balcony back in the theatre with an upper porch with marquee to match from the old days. They also purchased the property next to the building along the river for outdoor functions in 2020.
Here is just the first part of 2020 line up
