A little history

TITUSVILLE PLAYHOUSE, INC.
(1967)

Along with the fast growing population and industry of Titusville, its Little Theatre is growing too, bringing live entertainment to our Space Age community with non-professional local talent. In 1963 the city leased them the old city garage which was just a three sided lean-to, but the thespians fell in love with it immediately, letting their enthusiasm and dreams spread into the future. Before their present location, productions were put on in country clubs, marinas and cabaret styled. They opened their first show in the building with the musical "The King and I," continuing with comedy and dramas for the public's enjoyment.

Magnolia Theater Merging with another local theatre group, The Titusville Playhouse, Inc. was formed. With the latest benefit production of "Blithe Spirit". they hope to have the "GO" sign on renovating the building, bringing the seating capacity to 250 with a back drop on stage for flats. To add to the glamour, an awards night has been added to their program, a thrill equal to the real Oscar. During the Arts Festival they participated with such productions as "Auntie Mame" and "Sound of Music." For the Centennial an 1865 melodrama "Streets of New York" will be presented. The flame for the future that is making Titusville grow, also glows in "The Titusville Playhouse."
