Mecklenburg Clarksville Fine Arts Center
Community Players stage ‘The Miracle Worker’ March 14-16
Cast members with the upcoming Clarksville Community Youth Theater production of “Songs of Broadway” have polished up the show, which runs Saturday and Sunday at the Clarksville Fine Arts Center.
Phase 1 of the Clarksville Fine Arts Center “Sittin’ Pretty” campaign is on track to reach the campaign’s first goal: refurbished seating. With private donations of $19,390 and the Players and the Preservation fund adding $12,500 each, $44,390 comes to within $10,000 of bringing new seating to the building.
Support sought for ‘Sittin’ Pretty’ restoration campaign
The painted seats on the sign posted in front of the Clarksville Fine Arts Center indicate that the Sittin’ Pretty Campaign has begun with an impressive thrust toward the goal of $125,000. The plan is to refurbish all the theater seats, saving the cast iron frames and recovering the seats and refinishing the arms. If all goes as planned, the seats will be removed late in December and returned in time for the first production in 2013.
For the first time in decades, a local choir with orchestral accompaniment will perform Part 1, the annunciation and birth of Jesus, of George Frederick Handel’s Messiah as part of the opening events of the Christmas season in Clarksville.
The Clarksville Fine Arts Center Preservation Team will benefit from a June 2 fund-raiser by the Cowboy-Up Bar & Grill in Virgilina, which has collected funds for many needy causes in the past.
