Bama Theatre.JPGA power outage has forced the Bama Theatre on Greensboro Avenue to cancel several events this week. (Ben Flanagan/al.com)TUSCALOOSA, Alabama -- A Tuscaloosa power outage involving a raccoon getting into the Alabama Power substation on Friday night means lights out for several Bama Theatre events.

Theater manager

David Allgood said the raccoon "dealt the death blow to our circa 1938 cloth-covered power lines," and repairs should take between three to four days.

Repairs will include pulling old lines out and running new ones in, Allgood said. Allgood said the Bama is scheduled to be up and running for the Miss Alabama High School and Collegiate Pageants on Sunday.

The following Bama Theatre events are cancelled:

  • Bama Art House film "Beginners" on Tuesday, Sept. 13.
  • Michael Martone's book launch for "4 for a Quarter" on Wednesday, Sept. 14
  • Acoustic Night with Tom Evanchuck and Lena Dice on Thursday, Sept. 15.

All cancelled events will be rescheduled at some point.
