Central York Fire Services Loans 'Sylvia' an Awesome Fire Hydrant Prop

Verve Theatre Company would like to express their gratitude to Central York Fire Services on Gorham Street in Newmarket, for lending us a fire hydrant for our upcoming production. 'Sylvia' is a Broadway comedy about a man who finds a stray dog in the park and brings her home to his wife - who is not impressed.

"We are absolutely thrilled with the amount of support we've received from the town of Newmarket, and want to commend Central York Fire Services for their generosity in loaning us this stage prop," said Patrick Lannigan, volunteer and board member for Verve Theatre Company. "With this sense of community and cooperation its no wonder that historic downtown Newmarket has undergone an amazing turnaound in the last decade. Our postive experience in promoting live theatre with the businesses on Main Street, along with elected officials and town administration employees, has helped us understand how that turnaround happened and why Main Street Newmarket has become so successful."
