The latest from the Sussex County History Alliance’s Facebook page…

One night during the last show at Cornerstone Playhouse at the Historic Crescent Theatre, a lady came up to Margie Holowach, who was working the ticket booth and is on the board of directors of Cornerstone Playhouse and said that she had a copy of the opening night playbill that her grandmother had given her years and years ago. She said that we could have it as long as it never left the theatre. We of course agreed and a few weeks later she showed up with it in an envelope, fraying and not doing well after all of these years. I wish that I knew the lady's name so I could thank her personally but she didn't leave it. But it was together and she gave it to us and we will be having it mounted in a frame and hung at the theatre and it will grace all of the future Cornerstone Playhouse shows and act as a reminder that the arts and Sussex Borough go hand in hand. I thought that you would like a peek at it. On Monday, July 24, 2017 it will be one hundred years old.
