Fairbanks theater returns
FAIRBANKS, AK — No longer having miscellaneous tenants, the Empress Theatre is returning as a home for the local Shakespeare Company’s Bard-a-thon.
The Empress Theatre doesn’t look much like it did in 1927 anymore. But after 80 colorful years, the sturdy old building can still put on a show.
After a long hiatus, the Empress — or at least a remodeled version of it — will emerge again next weekend, when Fairbanks Shakespeare Theatre hosts its annual Bard-a-thon, a week-long, round-the-clock reading of Shakespeare’s plays.
