Merchants and Arts lovers who want to show their support for X*ACT’s new Performing Arts Center should consider making a donation and getting a STAR on the wall. Stop in at the Xenia Area Community Theater’s Second Act Thrift Store and talk to Orion or Jo or Harry or Cheryl or Mayor Pennewitt or Don or me or whomever else might be on hand to show you around the theater space and tell you about the joys and challenges of renovation of our “classic” building right in downtown Xenia at 45 E. Second St. The antique metal tile ceiling panels are now painted black, the walls are all finished up and painted a deep blue. The second “gold plated” exit door is installed on the parking lot side and the carpeting is going in this week. Excitement is building as we approach our final inspections before we are given permits to occupy our 75 seat theater, the first in downtown Xenia since our small loft theater closed.
Stars are also available at Express Yourself Coffeehouse & Art Gallery at 78 E. Main St. and soon at Eichman’s. If you would like to offer Stars at your place of business, contact Orion or Jo at 372-0516 and we’ll see that you get some.
Kettering Medical Group has made a large donation to allow us to complete our construction and we are now raising the final twenty thousand dollars to pay off our construction loan. You can be a part of something wonderful in our old hometown.
