Scheduled performances by Cheraw’s young musical and theatrical talents will have to wait — until the paint is dry and the drop cloths and dust are removed.
Because the job of painting the Theatre on the Green is not yet complete, the youth talent show, Got Talent?, originally scheduled for tonight, July 24, has been postponed.
Cheraw Arts Commission Executive Director Lindsay Bennett, organizer for the event, said a new date for the talent show has not been slated, but will be announced as soon as possible.
The walls of the front lobby of the theater are a breath of fresh air with a coat of Sherwood Williams Waterfall Aqua paint, trimmed in white. The interior walls of the theater are now a light Bunny Grey at the top, and Thunder Cloud Grey is used for the wainscotting.
This is the first time the theater has been painted since it was renovated and opened by the town in 1991.
For more information about the talent show, for children ages 5 to 18, call Bennett at 843-537-8420, extension 12.
