The world premiere of We Are…Marshall will be in Huntington, and renovations started today to renovate the 80-year-old Keith Albee Theatre to get it ready for the December 12th showing. And now, the historic stage is going through a transformation for opening night.
It’s not the phantom they're after, but more like the spirit of the Keith Albee. On Saturday morning, renovation got underway to bring life back into the downtown theater.
The whole restoration was started by a new nonprofit organization called the Keith Albee Performing Arts Center Incorporation. Their goal was to bring the theatre back to what it once was. First order of business is to take out some old walls.
The building will go from three theatres back into one, and they’re doing it piece by piece by piece.
The first event to be featured at the newly renovated Keith Albee is on September 22nd for the Marshall Artist Series. Then, on December 12th, it's the world premier of "We Are...Marshall."
