‘Glo ga’ event slated in Lewisburg

LEWISBURG — A unique class, “Glo ga,” will be at 3:30 p.m. Sunday at the Lewis Theatre in Lewisburg.

The class will be taught by Raeann Carrier from Almost Heaven Yoga. What is Glo ga? It is yoga with a twist. It involves wearing white or neon clothing and painting yourself with glow-in-the-dark paint. The activity is done under black light to techno music.

The cost is $15 per person and paint is provided. Enter through the stage door located in the parking lot in back of the Visitors’ Center. Come early to get properly painted.

“I’m hoping it’s a fun experience for everyone and people can just relax, let go and have fun while supporting the Lewis!” said Carrier.

All proceeds from this event are going to Help Project the Lewis Theatre into the Future, a fundraising campaign with Kickstarter.com. The project must raise $39,000 to supplement what the local owners have saved during six years to replace the 35mm film projector with a new digital one, required because film will no longer be produced at the year’s end.

At Kickstarter.com, pledges start at just $1, with no limit. The campaign is all or nothing. The Lewis has to raise the goal of 39,000 or they will not receive a penny from it. They are counting on the support of the community to reach their goal.

A benefit concert performed by Lawless Brown and Possum Holler Glee Club is scheduled Nov. 1 right after First Friday in downtown Lewisburg. Admission is sliding scale, from $10 to $30, or more. All proceeds from this event will also go to the Lewis Theatre project.

For more information on the events or how you can help contribute to the campaign call 304-645-3003 or follow us on Facebook for updates and movie show times.
