Erie Playhouse breaks ground today

Crews officially broke ground inside the Erie Playhouse today as part of the long list of renovations.  

Today, construction crews tore out the old stage and back wall of the stage to make room for the expansion and renovations being made.  The incoming Executive Director, Kate Neubert-Lechner, says she was surprised at how fast crews are working.

"They've been working a lot but today they are digging out our entire stage.  They took out the stage floor, took out about 5 inches of concrete and are now hauling out all of the dirt that was underneath the stage to reveal the original stage of the Strand Theater.  Then beginning on Monday they'll be breaking ground on that and digging down so we can sink our orchestra pit and create our green room under the stage."

The renovations are expected to be finished by the start of the new season in October.
