SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) - A San Angelo theater that closed more than 30 years ago reopens this weekend for a ballet performance.

The San Angelo Standard-Times (http://bit.ly/1o3BjSP ) reports that San Angelo Civic Ballet staff and volunteers spent two months dusting, adjusting lighting and pulling 300 chairs into place at the Texas Theatre, which closed in 1983.

The ballet will perform there for two nights only - Friday and Saturday.

Since there’s no working plumbing or ventilation, a restroom trailer will be parked outside and theater doors will be open to circulate air.

Meghann Bridgeman, the ballet’s artistic director, says, “We’re thrilled to bring a little bit of life into such a beautiful place.”

Renovation plans for the theater that opened in 1929 have been discussed over the decades, but haven’t come to fruition.
