The Lindsay Theater was renovated and reopened in the late 60's as a movie theater, but closed due to a lack of patronage in 1982. A small group of theater people, mostly members of a budding acting company known as The Town Players, decided to purchase the theater and turn it into a playhouse. This was accomplished in a remarkable short time through donations, no-interest loans, and fundraising. Leading this charge was Peggy Sanders, followed by Hal Munter and many other dedicated Lindsay residents.
Once the building was purchased, changes had to be made in order to use it for theater productions. The screen was removed, and some simple lighting was installed, and then we were off. The first play to be presented was "Egad, the Woman in White" in May of 1983 directed by Hal Munter. This was a high school producton. The first Lindsay Community Theater production was "Life With Father" in August of 1983.
The last two seasons have been successful, but patronage at our productions has been sporadic. Full houses, successful fundraisers, and generous donations are essential if the theater is to enjoy continued success. Membership in the theater family and the purchase of season tickets are just two of the ways you can support the theater. Volunteers are also needed to help backstage and in the front lobby for all productions.
