Stephen Moyer’s Brentwood Theatre Update

November 29, 2008

Stephen Moyer

Stephen Moyer and the staff at the Brentwood Theatre have been astonished at the numerous donations coming in from his fans for the re-building of the theatre . During December Stephen will be visiting the theatre to see the production of Fantastic Mr. Fox at which time he will be signing the donation certificates to be mailed out and hopefully received by his fans before the end of the year.

Fans who purchased a brick will be invited to the unveiling which should occur sometime in the new year. Unfortunately Stephen most likely will not be able to attend the event as he will be shooting Season 2 of True Blood at that time in Los Angeles and Louisiana. Photos of the new wall will be posted on the Brentwood Theatre website where fans will be able to see their engravings.

Stephen Moyer and the staff as the Brentwood Theatre are sincerely grateful to everyone who has made a donation to the theatre. With True Blood premiering in the U.K. in April on the FX Channel the exposure will surely generate more fans willing to help out with Stephen’s fundraising efforts.
