Struthers Library Theatre
Opened: 1883, renovations in 1919 and 1984
Struther's Library Theatre is a very large auditorium in a very small town on the Allegheny River that was built by a very rich man when this community was a very different place. The building also includes an inactive library (hence the name) and rehearsal facilities. I was there in the Summer of 1998 doing a production of The King and I when there was a resident Summer Stock company that used the facility. Unfortunately, I didn't get any exterior shots of the building, but these photos are from the theatre's 1996 annual report.
Necessity is often not the mother of invention. In many cases, it surely has been just the opposite, and invention has been the mother of necessity. (David Nye)
