A Brief History
Lebanon Community Theatre got its start in 1962, holding performances at various locations in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. Later that year, the theatre was able to purchase the Weidle horse barn (Die Rote Scheier) near 10th and Oak St. in Lebanon for $3,500.
The theatre enjoyed its first home for five years until April 23, 1971, when the Lebanon Daily News front page headline read: “Lebanon Community Theatre Destroyed By Fire.”
The next 10 shows were held at the Independent Fire Hall. But, by February 1975, an agreement had been reached with the City Of Lebanon, and Lebanon Community Theatre made its home in the place we all know and love today as “the Barn,” in the lovely park setting adjacent to Stoever’s (pronounced “stay-vers”) Dam.
