So much has been happening in my home town of Mount Vernon lately - the biggest thing is the opening of the Woodward Opera House. This historic gem was built in 1853 and has been restored to the 1880's look. The main hall seats almost 500 people, and there are two smaller theaters in the adjacent building (the annex) that each seat 125-150 - one is a black box and will host our new Living Room Series. The various facilities can be rented for weddings, parties and business functions. Be sure to visit their website.
