Opened in 1949 by Brown County resident A. Jack Rogers and Professor Lee Norvelle, director of University Theatre at IU joined forces to establish a non-profit “straw hat” theatre. “…to do for theatre in Brown County, what has been done in the field of painting.” Rogers supplied the land and financed the initial cost of the building, while Norvelle agreed to prepare all the productions at Indiana University using students and faculty and scenery built in the University workshops. Shows movies once a week or so on a 23 foot screen with digital projection.
