Theatre Recovering From Pandemic
Co-founder John Lepard says they are so excited to fill those seats again. He also recalls the first show in 2006 and after that there was a play every month until the pandemic affected us all.
When it stopped, it was a very sudden strange feeling to not have anything to do with the theater," he said. "So we decided to put some other things together. We put some strolling stories together that you can still find on our website. One is called 'The Fire Tour.' It’s about all of the fires that have happened in Williamston that shaped the town over the years.
There will be some cool new changes as well, they have been working on updating the theatre and making sure all seats have a great view, and getting new seats.
