WALLINGFORD, CT (CelebrityAccess) — Despite dire warnings of closure, the Toyota Oakdale Theatre will remain open.
In a post on the venue's Facebook page, Live Nation CT President Jim Koplik wrote:
"The Toyota Oakdale Theatre and The Dome at Oakdale remain open for business. All shows currently on sale will play as planned. We will be putting new shows on sale – and they will also play. In addition – we are in the process of booking more shows for both the theatre and The Dome.
"We expect to have an agreement with the Town of Wallingford and it’s Planning & Zoning Committee in the future. One thing everyone IS in agreement with – is to keep the Oakdale open."
The post comes after a Wallingford Zoning Board of Appeals that appeared to be a setback by Live Nation, after the board effectively upheld the town’s cease-and-desist order against the venue.
The town issued the cease-and-desist order against the venue over noise complaints and for Live Nation's use of the venue's domed lobby for concerts, which the town claims is a violation of the build's permit. – Staff Writers
