Fundraising Concert LIVE! ON OLDE MAIN Comes to The Alban Arts Center, August 7 The pandemic has hurt all businesses, but one that was particularly devastated throughout the past year has been the theater. While the arts have slowly begun a revival as pandemic restrictions lift, there is still a long way to go to financially recover.

Enter Alondra Johnson, a 16-year old guitarist, singer, and actress. Johnson spent most of her formative years in productions and classes at the Alban Arts Center, where she honed her talents. Now, she wants to give back to the theater that gave her so much.

"Last year during the COVID-19 outbreak I noticed the effects of financial devastation to the local theatre community," explained Johnson in a press release. "My home theatre (The Alban Arts Center) has basically raised me to how I am today through Acting, vocal, and stage presence classes and shows. The Alban has given me so much and molded me into a fine young adult that when I saw they were struggling I wanted to give back. The only way I knew how was to throw a concert fundraiser festival."

That fundraiser, hosted by Johnson, will take place on Saturday, August 7th, 2021 and feature ten bands with vendors setting up at 4:00 PM and music beginning at 6:00 PM. Full details are below:
