Information for this tour was contributed by Fred Armstrong.

The Orpheum Theatre was divided into three movie theatres in the early 1980s. The main auditorium was divided in half and the stage was made into a third small theatre. By the early 1990s, it had not been used for several years. It was renovated in 1994 into a live theatre venue. The interior was completely restored and the dividing walls removed. The area under the stage was excavated to create an orchestra pit and a new dressing room/green room was constructed. A stage winch system was installed which allows set pieces to move on and off by themselves. Roller drops are used because the theatre has limited fly space. The theatre is used primarily for community productions, although the occasional professional production is presented also.
