Auditorium rededication sparks month-long celebration

April 9, 2013 by  

Over in Deep River, a rededication of the Deep River Town Hall Auditorium will commence at the start of next month.

This will kick off a series of free programs taking place throughout the month of May. Restoration Committee is expecting to draw people, both spectators and performers, from all of the nearby towns, so Middletown residents should start making plans.

If it seems a bit early to make an announcement of an event still nearly a month away, think again. Remember, it is the early bird that gets the worm, or in this case, a chance to participate with a dance, theater or music group. Performers must contact Linalynn Schmelzer, a Restoration Committee member, no later than this Friday, April 12. Therefore, those Middletown residents who want a chance to be center stage need to act quickly.

This is an excellent opportunity for those who love to perform, and is also a chance for dance, theater, and music groups to gain publicity and increase their membership or, in the case of those who teach these arts, a chance at gaining new students. Groups and instructors should gather all pertinent information for any brochure printing the Restoration Committee might be putting together. Additionally, any local suppliers of items the performers might use should contact one of the local printing companies so as to be prepared to hand out their own digital business cards or flyers.

The month long celebration will begin May 1 and close with a community dance at 7:00 pm on May 31, featuring Ryan Hartt & The Blue Hearts as well as the Dizzy River Band. Additional dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
