ELKHART — The Lerner Theatre governing board approved a contract extension for the catering company that runs the Crystal Ballroom.

The contract with Matterhorn Conference Center was extended through March 2017.

The contract allows for automatic extensions of three-year periods after March 9, 2017.

The vote for approval was made Wednesday.

The board will now focus some of its attention on working to extend an agreement with Premier Arts, the resident theater company that works out of the Lerner Theatre and does a large amount of programming and educational services.

Officials hope to discuss the Premier Arts contract next month and finalize a new deal shortly afterward.
