Hoosier Ditty, a five-piece country music band based out of northwest Indiana and Chicago, will kick off a series of live performances at the Lorraine Theatre at 7 p.m. Saturday in Hoopeston.
The band caters to country music fans who like their music with a “little sense of humor” and features a selection of popular cover songs mixed with original compositions.
General admission for Saturday’s show is $15 per person. The opening band for the evening will be Chain Breakers.
The Lovin’ Cup Food Truck will be set up outside the Lorraine Saturday evening, starting at 5 p.m. allowing theater-goers to enjoy dinner under the marquee or take their meal to go.
Hoosier Ditty’s performance Saturday is the first of a series of live performances the Save the Lorraine Foundation will be presenting between now and the end of the year.
Doc Ashton and the Root Canals will perform at 7 p.m. Oct. 20.
Doug Church will present a tribute to Elvis at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 11.
Greg Weiss will present a dramatic reading of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” at 2 p.m. Dec. 17.
The proceeds from these performances will go towards the ongoing restoration of the Lorraine Theatre.
