Local residents can tour Troy University’s Davis Theatre for the Performing Arts and get a discount on tickets to upcoming shows during an open house at the historic downtown venue on Saturday, Aug. 10.
The open house will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and admission is free and open to the public. Guests will be able to tour the historic theatre, get a preview of the 2013-2014 performance season, and receive a coupon for 20-percent off tickets to an upcoming show.
The event will also feature refreshments, door prizes and a remote broadcast and music from Mix 103.
Located at 251 Montgomery Street, the downtown landmark is one of only a few historic theater venues still in operation. It first opened in 1930 as the Paramount Theatre, a “movie palace” and home for Vaudeville shows. The theatre closed in 1976, but was purchased and restored by Troy University and reopened in 1983 as the Davis Theatre.
