This summer enjoy a show at one of the oldest Theaters in the United States. Thalian Hall, which has been open since 1858, is a major asset to the local economy.

During the Civil War it was constantly used as a place of amusement, later notable actors such as Buffalo Bill Cody and Sir Henry Lauder performed there. Even though there have been repairs due to a small fire and renovations the theater has remained the mostly unchanged in an attempt to preserve the historical integrity of the building.

Over the next few months there will be a multitude of shows at Thalian Hall. Currently playing is the popular musical Jesus Christ Superstar followed by the classic Bye Bye Birdie next week. Additional shows include Norman, Camelot, How to Eat Like a Child, Paris Can Wait, and South Pacific.
