I grew up on theater, more specifically, I grew up doing theater at The Youngstown Playhouse. This winter, due to exorbitant heating costs and interior damage, the Playhouse closed for the season. Now it looks like it won’t be back at all.
I wrote William D’Avignon, the Community Development Director, in support of city funds for the theater. I also wrote the Mayor, Jay Williams. You can write too.
There are so few good things about Youngstown that it would be a shame to see the nation’s oldest community theater disappear forever.
