Item Description

The community theater, known today as Pennsylvania Playhouse, presently located on Illicks Mill Road in the City of Bethlehem, was incorporated in 1946. Prior to that date, its beginnings took its form from Plays and Players in 1926, Bethlehem Civic Theater in 1938 and in the 40's as the Drawing Room Theater. In 1963 the theater became part of the Bethlehem Redevelopment Project and its building on Old York Road had to be demolished. The City of Bethlehem made land on Illicks Mill Road available to the group on a 99 year $1.00 lease. A fund raising drive was launched. In May 1965, ground was broken and in October of the same year, the new 180 seat theater opened its first production under the new name of Pennsylvania Playhouse.
