Planning permission has been approved for a £2 million improvement project for the Theatre Royal in Dumfries.
The building is Scotland's oldest working theatre and was saved from closure two years ago.
The money is being put towards a bespoke rehearsal area, as well an improved drinks and food area and a more welcoming entrance.
Building work starts in February next year after the tendering process to find a developer, and it is estimate to take about a year to complete.
