Opening day for Theatre Cedar Rapids

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- It's opening day for Theatre Cedar Rapids.

It comes about 20 months after floodwaters filled the stage and first seven rows.  A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for noon Friday.

The nearly $8 million renovation includes a new floor, lounge, dance studio and reupholstered seats. FEMA provided some of the funds to renovate the facility.

The Cedar Rapids' community theater is in for a sold-out show as it returns after the floods.

The opening show - "The producers," plays through March 14.

The grand reopening of the Iowa Theater Building is at 6 p.m. Friday.
