With the fate of 2nd Street Theater still up in the air (although there's rumors of a potential buyer for the location) there's some good news to be had in the local theater world today with the announcement just minutes ago that Innovation Theatre Works will be opening a theater facility.
Most know Innovation for their productions of Driving Miss Daisy and the Frank Sinatra tribute My Way, both of which were performed at the Tower Theatre.
Located on the south end of town near the intersection of Reed Market Road and Division Street (just east of Highway 97), the facility will include a performance space that can seat between 175 and 190 people, as well as a lobby, dressing rooms and offices.
Innovation plans for the space to be more than a place for local theatrical presentations, expecting to hold sketch comedy performances, open mics and other events. This is in addition to the educational programs Innovation hopes to bring to their new spot.
