The show will go on. Old Town Theater will continue as an entertainment venue.
Rob Kaufman of PMA Properties announced Saturday morning that a local production company will operate the theater as a live performance venue.
The building is currently being renovated and Kaufman said more details would be available closer to the renovation’s completion.
Kaufman said: “This strong pledge of support from the entire community has helped to breathe new life into this old building. Renovations are underway to return the theater to its original eloquence and should be completed by this fall.”
According to the announcement from Kaufman, a full calendar of matinee and evening performances featuring comedy, music, magic and dance will be offered along with weekly appearances from nationally touring entertainers.
In addition to soft drinks and concessions, a gourmet, light fare menu will be offered, as well as a select list of beer and wine. Special events, catering and full service production capabilities will be available.
