Springdale Cemetery: Memories of a Lifetime

With $35 in the treasury, loads of enthusiasm and a strong interest in quality theatre, a dedicated group of friends launched Corn Stock Theatre in 1954. Fifty-plus years later, it continues to stage musicals and dramas in the iconic tent at upper Bradley Park. This WTVP production takes you back to the beginning, including the first performance of Gigi at Detweiller Park, the move to upper Bradley Park and the establishment of a lab theatre and Corn Stock for Kids. Thousands have been entertained, inspired and enlightened by shows over the years.
