— The

Carolina Theatre

will soon premiere a new updated look, thanks to the city of Durham.

It has agreed to pick up the $320,000 tab for emergency repairs to rigging equipment and catwalks inside Fletcher Hall.

Theater managers are now scrambling to find a contractor to do the work. If things do not get moving soon, a few shows may be canceled.
