SANDUSKYThe Sandusky State Theatre will receive a makeover, thanks to two grants worth a total of $308,848.
The first grant, from the Ohio Cultural Facilities Commission, is $201,848, and the second, from the National Park Service's "Save America's Treasures Program" will add $107,000.
The theater will use those funds for improvements that include the restoration of the second floor double-hung wooden windows, the main doors beneath the marquee, the exterior brick and terra cotta and the canopy and fire escapes. The theater will offer a tour of the areas it plans to restore at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
