Historic Hoosier Theater
“Dearly Departed”, a hilarious comedy set in the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, will be presented Friday & Saturday Nov 21st & 22nd, 2014. Curtain time is 7pm. Tickets are $12.00 at the door, or in advance at the Visitors Center in Vevay.
The Theater building is listed as a National Historic Landmark. Built in 1837 as a warehouse and store, it has housed a saddlery, the post office, the newspaper and a tavern. It became a building for popular entertainment in 1926, when it was converted to a movie theater. The theater closed in 1955. In 1983, a group got together and rejuvenated the building, presenting “The Rainmaker” as it’s first live production. Today the theater presents films, live performances and hosts civic events.
