SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - Construction is underway for a new community theater in downtown Sylvester.
Rocky's Music originally purchased the building to provide a performance venue for its students.
But once construction began, the space's potential grew.
Owner Dona Duckworth said that they're trying to bring the building back to its roots with exposed brick and wood ceilings.
"We're trying to bring back as much of that history as we can and mix it with the present. And show the future to the kids and show them what the possibilities are. You take the past and you marry it with what's going on now," said Duckworth.
The community theater will be used to host student performances, movies, coffee shop nights and private events.
There's no set completion date yet, but once the venue is ready, it will be a unique feature in Sylvester.
