Theater to host drive-in music concert Saturday

Pat Edwards

LORANE —  One of my favorite organizations that I’ve mentioned many times is feeling the pinch of having to cancel so many of its fun events. The Applegate Regional Theater, situated on Central Road near both Veneta and Crow, is trying to stay afloat until they can once again sponsor the drama and musical events in its beautiful theater and on campus.

  To try and give some of the residents of the area some entertainment while maintaining social distancing, it will be sponsoring a “Drive-In Concert” on Saturday, Aug. 29 at 6 to 8 p.m. on the grounds behind the theater. Two musical groups will be performing: Charming Tempests will be singing and playing modern contemporary music and Cherry Hill is a bluegrass/folk/Americana group. Both have gotten fantastic reviews, according to Vicki Sourdry of ART.

  Admission is $10 per car and social distancing will be required — no wandering around the grounds. Placing chairs or blankets next to your car, if you want, is fine as long as you don’t sit in groups outside of your own. There will be no concessions, so plan to bring your own popcorn and snacks. It should be a very entertaining evening and, for those old enough to remember, reminiscent of the days of “drive-in movies.” Please consider supporting ART. They have been an active part of the community, providing a venue for the talents of so many people for several years.
