The Princes Theatre in Clacton has been given a facelift costing £19,000.
The venue, which is the Town Hall of the Essex resort, has had a new carpet, curtains, redecoration as well as improvements to the bar area in the Essex Hall.
The theatre, which is run by Tendring District Council, puts on a varied programme of shows and hosts a number of major events during the year. It is also hired out for weddings and conferences
“We want our audiences, our entertainers and all those who use the theatre to have the best possible experience and look forward to coming back.
“I think it is fair to say that parts of the theatre were looking a little tired and were in need of a modernisation programme.
“We have achieved a great deal on a relatively small budget – especially considering the size of the theatre - and I hope people will be impressed with what they find."
In 2014 more than 36,000 customers came through the doors for shows.

An auction at Sotheby's has made a Cambridgeshire woman a multi-millionaire. Dawn Sadler from Dry Drayton inherited 15 paintings by LS Lowry from her brother AJ Thomson who built a successful waste paper business. This evening (Tuesday) they sold for a total of just over £15 million.
One of the finest collections of paintings by LS Lowry is going under the hammer and is expected to make more than 15 million pounds.
It's an eye-watering sum, but what's even more amazing is that the paintings were owned by a man who started his career at the age of 14 collecting waste paper door-to-door near Newmarket.
