Restoration money for downtown

In 2017, the Lebanon City Council approved the creation of a Downtown Building Restoration Program to incentivize building facade improvements.

Along with the program’s original loan interest grants, the City is now offering micro grants for downtown businesses with entrances on Main Street, between Vine and Maple streets.

The DBRP interest grant provides no-interest loans (drawn from participating local banks and credit unions) for building facade improvements. Interest grants are provided for loans up to $25,000, covering 100 percent of interest not to exceed a maximum rate of six percent.

The DBRP micro grant provides up to $5,000 per street address for improvements supportive of the original building design in terms of exterior materials, architectural ornamentation and finish.

Improvements might include paint, new awnings, door and window restoration, accessibility upgrades, signage, exterior lighting, removal of facades to recover original architectural intent, and more. The DBRP encourages improvements that support original exterior building design as closely as possible.

Grants are based on a first come, first served basis until intial funding is exhausted. For more information, go to www.ci.lebanon.or.us/cd, or contact Alysia at (541) 258-4256.

Best-selling author Redmon Hunter has created an unusual world for himself.

His talent lies in his ability to make his characters come to life for his readers; they’re so real, in fact, that they literally take up residence in his home while he’s working on a novel.

Once the book is published, they pack up and leave him to “live in the minds” of the readers.

Recently, writer’s block has set in, so all the characters from his works in progress have set up semi-permanent residence in literary limbo.

Redmon’s chance meeting with Amanda Hawkins, a beautiful, young pop literature professor, sets the wheels in motion for a madcap comedy where wild imaginary characters clash with real world snobs.

Tickets are $13 for adults, and $10 for kids and seniors. Visit www.AlbanyCivic.org for more information.

LBCC to stage award-winning play

Winner of five Tony Awards, “The Drowsy Chaperone”  will play March 29-April 14 in the Russell Tripp Performance Center at Linn-Benton Community College.

Performances are March 29 and 30, and April 5, 6, 12 and 13 at 7:30 p.m., with 2 p.m. matinees on March 31, April 7 and 14.

Tickets are $14 general admission, $11 seniors/students. Buy online in advance at tinyurl.com/get drowsy or in the box office one hour before each show starts.

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical called “The Drowsy Chaperone.”

Suddenly the cast recording comes to life as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and there are all the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.

The original Broadway production of “The Drowsy Chaperone”took home the most awards at the 2006 ceremony, including Best Book and Best Original Score. Hailed by New York Magazine as “The Perfect Broadway Musical,”  the show is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.

The local production is directed by Timothy John Kelley II and Doug Moxley, the team that brought “The Little Mermaid” to the Majestic in 2017. Kelley also most recently directed “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” at Albany Civic Theater.

Audiences will recognize several cast members from recent hits at the Majestic, ACT, the Russell Tripp Performance Center, and elsewhere.
