Oldcastle and Redevelopment

images (3)Like most people in Bennington, Bob and I were excited to hear about the group that was buying the Greenberg block with the idea of redeveloping the area. The partnership of various groups and individuals involved is looking to revitalize the downtown through a diversification of retail, businesses,  restaurants, offices and in-town living spaces. Of course, we were concerned  how it would affect Oldcastle Theatre. To find out, we interviewed Eric Peterson. While there, we also talked about Big River which was still running and which has just closed. Eric also talked about the next play, The City of Conversation, which runs from August 5 to August 21. He shared information about the new film program that is being planned by Oldcastle as well. There is a great deal going on with Oldcastle.  The new redevelopment project and Oldcastle are going to work well together.
