This summer, we were able to implement some improvements to the theatre-going experience that we’re really excited about thanks to funding from the Richland County Foundation. We’ve redesigned our lobby bar and added the position of Front of House Manager back to our administrative staff, hiring Ryan Shealy who has brought a wealth of great ideas to our organization.
One of the first things Ryan has done in his new role has been to partner with Martini’s on Main to create some signature cocktails for our theatre. Some of these cocktails are themed to specific events, and others will be available at all of our events. The first will be available at every show and is called “Curtain Up,” named because it shares a color with our iconic velvet curtain. Here’s how you can make “Curtain Up” at home:
Based on a classic Italian Negroni.
1 oz gin
1 oz Campari
1 oz sweet vermouth
Top it off with a splash of club soda to lighten the flavors.
The next cocktail is exclusive to our OhioHealth Symphony Series (for the “thyme” being):
1 1/2 oz Gin
1/2 oz Thyme-infused simple syrup
Top with tonic and a fresh slice of cucumber.
Stop by the bar in our lobby to check out some of these new signature beverages and get a 90th Anniversary cocktail glass, available while supplies last during our 90th Anniversary year.
