New partner for Oneonta Theatre
BY DENISE RICHARDSON
ONEONTA _ The owner of the Oneonta Theatre has joined forces with a talent promoter to present performances, concerts, touring groups, community events and fundraisers on the historic stage at 47 Chestnut St.
The partnership supersedes plans announced last year that Friends of the Oneonta Theatre would operate the facility, paying rent and utilities, working on renovations and scheduling programs.
Oneonta Theatre owner Thomas Cormier said Monday that he is grateful to FOTOT
for its support and the work its members did.
However, Cormier said, as a businessman, he wanted control of how the building is used.
