Changes in Store for ARTS

   Changes have been in the wind this year for the long-running Huntington theatre company ARTS Resources for the Tri-State (ARTS) - and they recently unveiled some of their plans.

   When they announced this season's shows, they only announced three shows for the first half of the year - half their usual season.

   During last weekend's performance of Glengarry Glen Ross (a powerful production with stellar performances), they announced that they're in the process of moving!

   The group has been working out of the old Huntington High School (now known as the Renaissance Theatre) since they formed some 15 years ago, presenting shows in the theatre and in the ballroom.

   But a new space is being built for the group - a black box theatre in the former Corbin Building on Huntington's West End. The space is under construction, and ARTS won't move until it's ready - which means the other two shows they've announced so far - Steel Magnolias and An Evening with Gilbert and Sullivan - will be presented in the Renaissance ballroom.

   It'll be interesting to see the effect that will have on the productions the group offers - and what will happen to the space at the old Huntington High School.
