I haven't seen anything. However, last week I got a renewal notice for the last 3 concerts of the Philharmonic season which were supposed to be at the Sharon, but are now scheduled for Savannah Center. Something tells me that the Sharon is running a little behind whatever magic schedule was planned.

Today's paper said they are putting the finishing touches on, whatever that means.

A sales rep said she thought that it might late January or early February for the grand opening.

About 2 weeks ago I talked to a worker in the building and he said Jan 19.

Does anyone know the total capacity for Sharon? Sometime ago I heard numbers from 800 to 1200. That's a big leeway. Bigger the capacity believe they can contract top notch entertainment.

I think the capacity is around1100 and there is a parking lot in back for 67 cars. So if you have 2 sold out performences, rocky at the square and a good band at katie bells, where will everyone park? That does not include the restaurants and the movie theaters.

There's plenty of parking at all the squares. The only thing is you might have to walk a block or two!

I am not a negative person. Really!!

But we were a bit disappointed in the concert seating at the Savannah Center. (That makes me sound like a snob, which I am not! Truly!)

The entertainment was great. But the folding chairs with no space between rows surprised us. We did expect theater quality seats. Everything else here is top notch!

We are hoping that the Sharon Morse Center will be what we were expecting at Savannah.

Looks like it will be First Class.............and exceed your expectations, hopefully.

Dotti, you can subscribe to The Villages email newsletter, if you don't already. It sometimes includes updates on major construction projects.

If I am going to attended a show at the Sharon Morse Performing Arts Center I will go to the parking lot behind the center and put a string across a parking space or maybe take possession of an orange cone that is not being used and reserve my parking spot.
