50th Anniversary Convention June 10-12, 2022

June 10 - June 12

The Theatre Museum in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of its groundbreaking this June with a ribbon cutting to reveal the newly completed exhibition hall display and a convention on site, June 10-12. The event is open to the public. Reflecting the long-time dream of repertoire theatre company owners and actors Neil and Caroline Schaffner, the museum is dedicated to the preservation of memorabilia and artifacts of early repertoire theatre. The collection includes numerous painted curtains, costumes and equipment used by individual performers and technicians, playbills, advertising sheets and promotional posters. The Theatre Museum additionally houses an extensive research library of rare scripts, correspondence, tour schedules, production photos, and other original source materials. Of special interest is the large collection of videotaped interviews with actual troupers describing their professional and personal experiences.
