Santa Rosa Junior College to refurbish and upgrade Burbank Auditorium

dt.common.streams.StreamServer.clsJanuary 6 — In a recently distributed message from Frank Chong, President of the Santa Rosa Junior College, it was announced that the school’s much-used Burbank Auditorium – home to SRJC’s Theater Arts program and the popular Summer Repertory Theatre program – will be getting a long-delayed upgrade and remodeling. Using grant money’s set aside for the improvement of campus facilities, the upgrade, set to begin this month, will be completed by 2018, in time for the campus’s 100th anniversary celebration.
