Good Imperial pick 082998 - The Augusta Chronicle



The future is looking brighter for Augusta's Imperial Theater since its board of directors picked the experienced and savvy Larry Rogers to be general manager.

In running the Imperial, Rogers can draw on his many years of service managing the Augusta-Richmond County Civic Center/Bell Auditorium complex until 1993, when one of those political vendettas that periodically grip the Coliseum Authority resulted in his contract non-renewal.

It's heartening to see Rogers back where he belongs -- working to breathe new life into one of our area's important cultural and entertainment assets.
