Snapshots of History 19

This week's snapshot comes from the late 1990s, during the Rose Garden era. It gives a great view of the theater audience area and balcony, as a performer would see from the stage. We have only found a couple photos taken from this angle, and this one is likely the best in quality. Our renovated theater will have a similar look that will hold-true to the original design. New seats, lighting, audio systems, and video projection are just a few of the new additions that will complement this amazing space.
