Priscilla Beach Theatre Restoration, Priscilla Beach, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

Priscilla Beach Theatre, now in its 78th year, is the oldest barn theatre still in operation in the United States. The ongoing restoration work by Owners and Guardians Bob and Sandy Malone will be completed in time for next summer's performance season. "Fiddler on the Roof," and "Chicago" are already scheduled.

This update is the sixteenth part of a multi-part series which I began in May 2014 to chronicle this extraordinary project to restore a precious part of our American theatrical heritage. You can read my other blog posts about the construction progress and stage performances by typing "Priscilla Beach" in the search box in the right side column of this blog.

November 6 - It was pouring rain on this day - sheets of water rolling off the roof - nobody working outside.

Support live theatre - wherever in the world you may live.
