Musical Theater Festival Aligns with Cayuga Community College

Both the City Council and the Cayuga County Legislature committed at separate meetings to a partnership that would support plans for a 300-seat theater to be built in the center of Auburn’s “creative corridor” on State Street.

City councilors unanimously approved selling the vacant Kalet’s department store building, where the proposed theater site will be developed, to the county. In turn, county lawmakers agreed to negotiate buying the building from the city.

Once the sale goes through, plans call for the county to lease the space to Cayuga Community College, which in turn will level the building and construct the theater for the proposed summer festival. The event would run for 10 to 12 weeks in the summer, and is expected to start in 2011. (more…)
