Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2014 11B ARTS a 1-; (1 ENTERTAINMENT Quincy native Cole Young provides a comedy fundraiser for the Town Hall Theatre on Aug. 21. Photo courtesy Plumas Arts Show to benefit theatre The Town Hall Theatre digital funding campaign has a funny bone just waiting to be tickled at the Cole Young & Friends Comedy Night Benefit on Thursday, Aug. 21. r The show begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. "Cole had presented a comedy night benefit for the Town Hall Theatre several years ago that was very well-attended," comments Plumas Arts Director Roxanne Valladao. "When he found out about our Save the Theatre Campaign (to purchase digital projection equipment so that the theatre can stay in business) he asked if he could do another for us. We gratefully accepted." Cole Young will be the evening's headliner. Young grew up in Quincy and has been living in Los Angeles for the past 25 years. In Los Angeles he has performed and starred in over 20 different stage plays, appeared several times on national tlevisi'0ti aS Wll as performed standup comedy. "Growing up in Quincy provided me with many memorable experiences. From swimming in Spanish Creek, skiing at Johnsvflle, enjoying Bucks Lake to going to watch movies at the Town Hall Theatre -- all were favorite pastimes. I feel this "upbringing has given me basic survival skills needed in adapting to live in other places. "For me, being from Quincy has given me a sense of humor along with the people skills to live in an area as far removed from this small logging town as Los Angeles is." Lisa Grant got on board with Young for the event and will be hosting and serving as emcee for the evening. "Grant is a Quincy native; she loves our community and is happy to be helping out the THT," said Valladao. "Lisa finds humor in almost any situatiop in life, which is what makes her comedy so relatable." Valladao also reports that James Wilson is also scheduled to perform. He will "no doubt be inspired by the recent birth of his daughter, being a first-time father." Other local comedians are soon to be confirmed. Presale tickets for the comedy night benefit are on sale for $10. Tickets at the door will be $15 each, if the event is not sold out. Call 283-3402 or stop by the Plumas Arts Gallery at 372 Main St. to purchase.

Save Our Theatre campaign makes ,headway As of Aug. 7 the Save Our Theatre campaign had collected just over $47,000 toward the conversion to digital projection. Town Hall Theatre management feels optimistic that the funding goal will be met before the end of 20i4. Final bids for equipment, installation, a screen, the DVD/laptop interface and a roof repair over the projection room are being secured. "At this juncture it looks like a total of about $80,000 will be required," said Plumas Arts' Roxanne Valladao, who is coordinating the fundraising campaign. Tentative plans are being made for a late October installation. "The community has been phenomenally generous," said Valladao, "whether that generosity be donating $1,000 or more or depositing spare change in one of the donation jars around town. "The community has been phenomenally generous." Roxanne Valladao Plumas Arts Director It has been just overwhelming to see how very many people care enough to help the theatre meet this challenge." The August challenge Valladao reports that a generous private donor will match dollar for dollar all donations up to $5,000. This offer has inspired The August Challenge. Donors effectively double their contribution money when they make a donation between Aug. 7 and 28. Plumas Arts has been advised by local teachers and Feather River College instructors that their next paycheck arrives after Sept. 1. That will give numerous others an opportunity to support the Save Our Theatre campaign. "As it turns out there is another $5,000 dollar-for-dollar match poised in the wings for that time period," said Valladao. "So we are also planning for an Educators & Others Challenge for the month of September." Free cartoons after fair parade The Tow Hall Theatre has a collection of vintage cartoons -- Baby Huey, Mr. Magoo and the like. As a special event after the Plumas-Sierra County Fair Parade, the cartoons will be screened with brief intermissions in between. The concessions stand will also be open just before and after the parade while the cartoons are on screen. This is an opportunity for visitors -- and the Quincy Peeps -- to stop in to take a look at the theatre and make a donation in person if they so choose. "Plumas Arts also wants to recognize the online funding effort that is being made by the Quincy Peeps through Facebook, which has brought in hundreds of dollars of donations," said Valladao. Scheduled fundraising events Community members are organizing fundraising events to help Save Our Theatre: --Cole Young & Friends are hosting a Comedy Night Benefit on Thursday, Aug. 21. --Tailor Walmer's Quincy High School senior project is a Silent Film Movie Night with a Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest Wednesday, Aug. 27. --Stylists from Body & Soul will be in the Town Hall Theatre designing "Hollywood hair" on Friday, Sept. 26, for the Quincy Merchants' annual Girls' Night Out. --The Fractured Fashionistas Fashion Show on Oct. 11 at the Quincy Vets Hall has also been designated as a benefit for the Town Hall Theatre.
