An Oak Ridge talent show and pub quiz night will benefit the historic, renovated Grove Theater on March 28 and 29.
On Friday, March 28, the new nonprofit organization Friends of the Grove Theater will have a showcase titled â€œOak Ridge Has Talent.â€ It will benefit the Grove, a legacy of the Manhattan Project era that is celebrating 70 years of history and a decade since its re-opening by High Places Community Church, a press release said.
The Manhattan Project was a top-secret federal program to build the worldâ€™s first atomic bombs during World War II.
All proceeds from the March 28 show at the Grove will be used to maintain the facility as a performing arts center for Oak Ridge and East Tennessee organizations, the press release said. The show starts at 7 p.m., and it will include performances from community partners and other locals who want to support the Grove. Comedian and humorist Tyler Gooch will entertain between acts.
