"Bay City Players – 100 Years of Community Theatre"
A look into the past and a glimpse of the future 
 with Leeds Bird & Kathy Pawloski


Location:  1214 Columbus Avenue, Bay City* 


  A power point presentation at Players Theatre on Columbus Avenue will include a trip through Players’ 100-year history from March 19, 1917, to the present.


  Additionally, the development of the theatre will be illustrated through the many renovations over the years leading to the beautiful and highly practical facility it is today. Players is not celebrating this anniversary by looking back, but has instead taken steps into the second 100 years already. These changes for improvement will also be discussed.


Those wishing to enjoy a tour of the theatre will be able to do that after the presentation
