LEWISBURG – The Lewisburg Downtown Partnership, Campus Theatre, the CommUnity Zone and others are working to bring more live, local entertainment to The Valley. The Live! From Lewisburg Variety Show is set to take place May 18.
Guess who’s going to emcee the event? You know him, you love him, it’s Tom Morgan from 94KX’s Morgan in the Morning.
Ellen Ruby, Executive Director of the Lewisburg Downtown Partnership tells us the first Live! Performance last November had a full house at the Campus Theatre. She says this event helped showcase the community’s talents and let viewers relax for a night full of entertainment.
“Live! From Lewisburg Variety Show is a collaborative event. Campus Theatre, CommUnity Zone, and Lewisburg Downtown Partnership showcased a lot of talent, which we do have. We’re looking to do that again,” she said.
Ruby also tells us this project started in the summer of 2020 with outdoor meetings and appreciating how large the Campus Theater was to adhere to COVID-19 protocols, “Many people felt isolated during the lockdowns.”
She said this type of community event was needed to help others get back into the normal swing of things, “Music and art and live performance, when we were able to do it again after 2020, was part of what brought us back together.”
