According to theater staff, $11 million of the $12.5 million has been raised to date for the capital campaign.

The renovation and expansion is aimed at improving the theater experience for patrons, artists and staff, including additional restrooms and expanding the building's footprint on both the east and south sides to increase lobby space and allow for an elevator, some of the many updates to infrastructure planned to meet the needs of artists and touring companies.

Symphony in the park

Members of Billings Community Band perform during Symphony in the Park at Amend Park on Sunday, June 24, 2018.

While the theater undergoes renovations, ABT's 2019-2020 season will be announced in late May, and will be presented at various venues including Lincoln Center, Petro Theatre on the campus of MSU-Billings and Babcock Theatre.

Tickets for Sunday's Community Band concert are $8, and are available at the Alberta Bair Theater Box Office, by phone at 406-256-6052, or online at www.albertabairtheater.org.
