Says Kelli Strickland, executive and artistic director of the Weidner Center: “The Weidner is thrilled to be working with The Tarlton to support the full utilization of this charming and historic space in support of a vibrant arts and culture eco-system. The theater itself is so intimate and funky, it just begs for offbeat, surprising programs. We have a number of initiatives as we head into our 30th year that are laser focused on getting out of our building and into the community. This will be one of many. We will of course, continue to offer the large-scale, high-quality offerings our audiences have come to expect to experience in Cofrin Family Hall at the Weidner. But this is something entirely different. A much more intimate audience experience in a cabaret-like environment. Programming at the Tarlton will be announced on an ongoing basis throughout the year.”
