AN EVENING WITH PETE ROSE Benefit on March 30

AN EVENING WITH PETE ROSE to Benefit the Incline Theater Project in East Price Hill
Sunday, March 30 at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts

Pete Rose.

Pete Rose.

Get ready for Opening Day in style with a special evening with Western Hills’s favorite son, Pete Rose.

On the eve of Cincinnati’s historic Opening Day, hear classic stories from the Hit King’s career, tales of growing up on the west side – including his connection with the Covedale Center building – and more at “An Evening with Pete Rose – A Benefit Fundraiser for the Incline Theater Project.”

“I am thrilled to death to be back on the West Side at the Covedale Theater where I have memories of going to the cinema as a kid,” Rose said. “Close to West High and Price Hill Chili, the Covedale was the place to be on many nights.”

So it will be on March 30 at 8 p.m. when Rose takes the stage at the Covedale. Attendees will hear Rose speak about his favorite baseball memories, some stories from his days at West Hi and even his thoughts on the 2014 baseball season, just hours before the first pitch of the season. Rose will also take questions from the audience.

“An Evening with Pete Rose” is presented by Driehaus Insurance Group, and Doug and Cathie Ridenour.

Every attendee will receive an autographed copy of the acclaimed 2010 documentary, 4192: The Crowning of the Hit King. Three ticket levels are available:

  • “VIP” tickets – $125 each, includes a seat in the reserved premium section in the first four rows, two drink tickets and admittance to a special pre-event meet-and-greet reception with Pete.
  • “Charlie Hustle” tickets – $80 each, includes two drink tickets and a standard seat in the theater, as well as the autographed DVD.
  • “Value” tickets – $65 each, includes a seat in the back section of the theater, as well as the autographed DVD. 

All proceeds from the evening will go toward Cincinnati Landmark Productions’ Incline Theater Project. The proposed 220-seat theater and parking garage in the Incline District in East Price Hill is a $5.6 million project with plans of breaking ground later this spring – pending final fundraising.

Once open, the Incline Theater would be programmed year-round by Cincinnati Landmark Productions to create an estimated 112 “show nights” in the new space, including a subscription season designed to complement the season at the Covedale Center, a short “summer fare” season and one-night concerts, comedy events and cabarets.

“The Incline District is a neighborhood on the rise,” said CLP Executive Artistic Director Tim Perrino. “It’s exactly the place a growing arts organization wants to be.”

CLP has seen first-hand the impact the Covedale Center has made in West Price Hill. Since opening in 2002, the arts center quadrupled its subscribers from 804 the first year to over 3,700 for the current season. Attendance ballooned from 13,990 in the 2002-03 season to over 36,000 (representing 336 zip codes) in the 2012-13 season.

Donor programs, naming rights and sponsorships for the new venue are available. For more information about the Incline Theater Project, visit www.inclinetheater.com or call (513) 241-6550.

‘Incline Theater’ Proposed for East Price Hill

Cincinnati Landmark Productions Envisions New Performing Arts Venue Overlooking City

This Monday, at a meeting of the East Price Hill Improvement Association, representatives from Cincinnati Landmark Productions expect to present a proposal for building a new performing arts center in the Incline District in East Price Hill.

Cincinnati Landmark Productions (CLP) is the non-profit owner and operator of the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts in West Price Hill as well as the producing company and nautical caretaker of the Showboat Majestic downtown.

The new proposed theater would seat around 250 and be programmed year-round by Cincinnati Landmark Productions to create an estimated 112 “show nights” in the new space, including a subscription season designed to complement the season at the Covedale Center, a short “summer fare” season and one-night concerts, comedy events and cabarets.

CLP officials said the recent 10-year anniversary of the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts prompted discussions about ways to grow the organization over the next 10 years. With the Covedale Center’s production schedule already at its limits and with the Showboat Majestic being a summer-only venue, the only avenue for meaningful growth was to investigate the feasibility of a new venue.

Representatives from CLP met with developers and neighborhood leaders around the region to discuss its goals and to look for good fits. But it was the meeting with a development group from East Price Hill that owned a vacant parcel on Matson Place that quickly rose to the top.

“The Incline District is a neighborhood on the rise,” said CLP Executive Artistic Director Tim Perrino. “It’s exactly the place a growing arts organization wants to be.”

Perrino said after initial discussions, both CLP and the developers viewed the partnership as a win-win. The land and its ideal location next to plentiful parking, dining options and a gorgeous view would make for a great regional draw.

“The people we’ve talked to see the true value an arts center can bring to a neighborhood,” Perrino said. “The arts create neighborhood vibrancy, more pedestrians, good news stories, visitors from outside the neighborhood, more bar and restaurant patrons, and improved neighborhood perception.”

CLP has seen first-hand the impact the Covedale Center has made in West Price Hill. Since opening in 2002, the arts center quadrupled its subscribers from 804 the first year to over 3,600 for the upcoming season. Attendance ballooned from 13,990 in the 2002-03 season to over 35,300 (representing 309 zip codes) in the 2011-12 season.

Additionally, small business owners in the Glenway Avenue neighborhood business district (where the Covedale Center resides) say they have invested more than $500,000 in their properties since the arts center opened. Restaurant owners cite a 15-20 percent increase in business on Covedale Center show nights, and local safety officials credit theater-going crowds with pushing crime away from the area.

“We’re excited to present the idea to the community,” Perrino said. “It’s a neighborhood I care about deeply. As East Price Hill grows and thrives, it would be the perfect place for Cincinnati Landmark Productions to do the same.”
