ASU to hold Bank Street Bash tonight

DECATUR — Athens State University will hold its second-annual Bank Street Bash at 7 tonight at the Princess Theatre in Decatur.

The evening will include hors d’oeuvres, drinks and a preview of the Bank Street Players production of “The King and I,” which will be performed April 4-6 at the theater.

Ronnie Knox, director of development for ASU’s Office of Advancement, is scheduled to speak about the next phase of the Alabama Center for the Arts, including theater curriculum.

Rick Mould, ASU’s vice president for Academic Affairs, said the second phase of the art center, located at 133 Second Ave. in Decatur, is in its preliminary stages. He expects plans to be made sometime before the end of the year. Officials are considering building a black-box theater as well as an area for classrooms.

“We are working with an architect and sorting out what is needed,” Mould said. 

Adjunct Professor Deanna Knox will also speak at the Bank Street Bash. She will focus on the importance of theater within the community and its benefit to children.

Tickets for the Bash are $35 each, or $60 for a couple, and can be purchased at the door.

Proceeds will help the Bank Street Players continue developing local talent and bring more of the performing arts to the Princess stage.
