Effort To Purchase Astra Theater Getting Oh So Close; Next Act To Host “Milestone” News Conference



JASPER (NNDC) – The continuing effort by the local group Next Act, Inc. to purchase the now-closed Astra Theater took another step forward Monday morning.

Jasper Engines & Transmissions President Zach Bawel presented the local non-profit group a check for $5000 for its “Save-The-Astra” campaign.

Next Act is wanting to purchase the nearly 80-year old downtown theater and turn into a multi-use performance center.

Next Act is not saying how close it is to purchasing the theater, but in addition to this morning’s check presentation, Next Act has sent out a notice to all local media of its plans to host a news conference a week from tomorrow (Tuesday November 17th) at the theatre.

Next Act officials are not saying exactly why the news conference is being held; only calling it “an important milestone in theĀ group’s brief history.”
With Bawel this morning for the check presentation this morning at Jasper Engines & Transmissions are Leslie Hamby and Marc Steczyk with Next Act, Inc.
