Actors JuliA Louis-Dreyfus and Brad Hall join effort to restore Lompoc Theater

Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus and her husband, writer/director Brad Hall, have made the first major donation to the Lompoc Theatre Project, kicking off the nonprofit’s capital campaign to restore and reopen the theater, board members announced today.

Louis-Dreyfus, known to millions as Elaine Benes from “Seinfeld,” just won her ninth overall and fifth consecutive Emmy Award for her role as Selina Meyer, vice president of the U.S. in the HBO series “Veep,” which she also produces.

Brad Hall met Mark Herrier, president of the board of directors of the Lompoc Theatre Project (LTP), while Hall and Herrier were students at Allan Hancock Community College and members of Pacific Conservatory Theatre (PCPA). Hall and Louis-Dreyfus met while both were attending Northwestern University and married in 1987.
