Construction in the Liberty District is not the only thing going on in that section of downtown Columbus. The historic Liberty Theatre is also making some changes. The theatre is now under new management and will have a new director.
Actor and playwright Jonathan Perkins will take over the reigns of the Liberty Theatre in May. Perkins who has directed and starred in several plays at the theatre says his first priority is the "Liberty Summer Arts Academy" which will begin this summer.
If you would like to sign you children up for summer classes at the Liberty, you can call the front office at 706-653-7566.
