“Preserving venues like the Princess – which bring the arts to rural communities – is more important now than ever,” Brooks said. “The arts inspire and institutions like this theatre provide a necessary public service and a convenient location to experience live entertainment. Supporting the preservation of historic venues like The Princess Theatre in my home state is something I’m incredibly passionate about.”
