Americus-- A historic theatre in Americus wants to re-store a foundation that will help it bring in more money.

They Rylander Theatre is a state of the art facility used for a variety of live performances. But lately attendence isn't where administrators would like it to be, and that can affect the money brought in to support the theatre.

When it re-opened, a group called Friends of the Rylander formed to promote the theatre and help it raise money.  

"Somewhere along the way disesembled but we'd like to have them back and were working to get them back together and hopefully that will give us a big boost," says Sue Riley of The Rylander.

Riley says with more money, the theatre can bring even larger productions to the area. Georgia Southwestern is a heavy supporter of the Rylander and the Sumter Players perform at the theatre 4 times a year.
