Workers prepare for the front of the Mars Theater for a new marquis on the old building in downtown Springfield.
The Mars Theater is being renovated for a new life as an arts center. The Mars will be one of the beneficiaries of a fundraising concert Sunday by the Effingham Community Orchestra. The concert will be held at 3 p.m. at Effingham County High School.
