The beautiful stained glass windows at the Cedar Street Playhouse are unique pieces of artwork that cannot be replicated and the frames that hold them have deteriorated over their many years. The frames themselves are lovely pieces of wood craftsmanship and artistry and must be re-built by a true craftsman in the trade.
These lovely windows were uniquely crafted with the addition of hand painting to add texture and effects and have long been enjoyed by the Rolla community and those who have attended events at the building as both a church and theatre.
The structure at 7th and Cedar Streets was completed in 1945 by the First Baptist Church, Rolla. It was used and enjoyed by that congregation for many years before becoming the theatre for the University of Missouri-Rolla. Ozark Actors Theatre began performing in the building in 1988 and many other organizations such as Fine Linen Theatre, the Cedar Street Players, Stop Making Sense Improv, dance companies, musicians and local businesses have utilized the space since then.
Please join us in saving these beautiful pieces of art for the enjoyment of so many! Visit us at: ozarkactorstheatre.org for more information.
