Following years of experience as an actor and director in Los Angeles, MaryBeth Scherr-Babcock founded a non-profit organization on her commitment to develop strong acting talent in the Monroe County area.
The Theatre is housed in what was originally the Greenville Steam Laundry, the Hygienic Ice Company, the Hygienic Dairy and the Ice Cream Company. Today, plays are performed for almost 3,000 patrons each year with a season of up to six plays. Now the sewing machines in the costume shop create colorful dresses, hats and capes rather than work gloves.
This theater has been showing movies to the residents of Highland since the movie industry came of age. Prior to that, it was a live entertainment facility used for everything from plays to vaudeville shows. Recently renovated, they now show first run movies.
