York Theatre Renovation

The renovation of the old York Theatre at Commercial and E. Georgia is moving ahead quite quickly.   As a result of the stripping of stucco from the south wall we now have another “ghost” sign:  this one for the Little Theatre.  It is not so easy to see, especially with the scaffolding still in place, but hopefully you can get a flavour of it from this image:

Tom Durrie, who has written a sketch of a history of the York Theatre, believes the “Little Theatre” sign was painted in 1923 when the Little Theatre Society purchased the site.

Will the sign be saved?   We can only hope!
