THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY OF THE BLACK RIVER PLAYHOUSE: Celebrating 50 Years of the Chester Theatre Group in Residence @ CHESTER LIBRARY

Sunday, March 11 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

The Black River Playhouse is one of the most iconic buildings in Chester. It is certainly the most mysterious, windowless building in the historic village. The building has had an incredible 164 year journey, physically and functionally. Trials, tribulations, trauma, finally ending in triumph. This is the story of how a bankrupt Bedminster Baptist church became the Black River Playhouse, home to the Chester Theatre Group for the last 50 years. House of worship, house of government, house of burlesque, house of silent and talkie movies, and after much turmoil the Black River Playhouse. Luckily our story is not a tragedy, but there are heroes, heroines, and rats. Let the play begin!   Presented by Ed Ng of the Chester Historical Society.  Refreshments following program.  Register online at www.chesterlib.org.
