Wayne Alan to be the new owner of The Historic North Theatre

In spite of what some people think of Friday the 13th, magician Wayne Alan believes it is a lucky day.

He won a gold medal for Grand Illusion on that day in 1982, and now it will be his first full day as the owner of the North Theatre on North Main Street in Danville.

Alan is officially purchasing the building Thursday. Even though the electricity is out and the weather is dreary, Alan was beaming with excitement on his latest business venture.

“My feeling is Danville is part of a revitalization right now,” said Alan. “And I want a ride on that wave.”
