The Hopewell Theater will celebrate both its fourth anniversary and its reopening with a Sept. 10 concert by Danielia Cotton. There will be a pre-show party at 6:30 PM, followed by Cotton’s performance at 8.
Cotton’s band will include drummer Aaron Comess (of The Spin Doctors) and guitarist Matt Beck.
Cotton, the daughter of singer Wenonah Brooks, grew up in Hopewell. “Happy to be a part of the official reopening of my hometown theater post COVID lockdown,” Cotton said in a press release. “It is my honor to once again perform in this small but mighty theater that has become a true gem in the town I grew up in.”
The theater, whose history dates back to 1880, had fallen into disrepair but underwent extensive renovation before reopening in its current incarnation in 2017.
Tickets for Cotton’s show will go on sale for theater members, June 29, and to the general public on July 6. Visit hopewelltheater.com.
Other shows currently booked at the theater include Pyrenesia, Sept. 17; Patty Larkin, Oct. 16; and Chris Pierce, Nov. 5.
