Mt. Vernon Theatre

What to do on Friday night? Take in a concert.

The Mt. Vernon Theatre operations board has set Friday, April 12 as the date for its “Music in the Park.”
The concert will be from 6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. at Bell Park in Tallassee.
Admission is free, but donations will be appreciated.
Event coordinator Kami Scarborough said Noah Griggs, Jr. came up with the idea.
“We were looking for a fundraiser,” Scarborough said. “We’re also creating awareness about the theatre.”
To complete the theater restoration project, approximately $400,000 still needs to be raised.
Musicians Roland “Lucky” Jackson, Zac Martin and Five and Dime will perform acoustic sets in a picnic setting. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets and coolers.
“If we get a good response, we may have another one,” Scarborough added.
Additional parking, if needed, will be available at the First United Methodist Church.
