Real quick, where will you be on Oct. 4?
Next up on the agenda...Oct. 4 craft beer and food fundraiser for The Centre Theater Who needs tickets? I describe it all in my latest rant in The Times Herald. We have a fundraiser coming up on Oct. 4 for the Centre Theater. We’re doing a craft beer and food pairing event to raise money for the venerable venue. It promises to be a great afternoon, starting around 4:30 and going until 7:30. I’ll be the guest bartender, so come on by and say hello if you’re in the neighborhood. If you’re not in the neighborhood, make a U-turn and come on over anyway. The fundraiser is going to help the entire theater, but just in case you had no idea what goes on at 208 DeKalb, I’ll let you in on a few of the events. Wallafest is held every summer and features about 16 bands over two days. There are plays and poetry readings, and there are kids programs as well, lots of programs for kids. Citizen Paine is an off-Broadway show that will be making a return appearance this fall, and we’re in the planning stages for the upcoming theatrical season. Oh, and we’re just about to launch a music school. Did you know there was a music school in Norristown? We’ve been lucky enough to get a couple of donations from our two local state representatives, Matt Bradford and Mike Vereb, and we’ve purchased a few instruments. We’re teaming up with the Police Athletic League to brings kids over after school to give them a taste of the arts through this incredibly low cost program. Come down Oct. 4 and I’ll tell you all about it.
