Closed in 1973 because its building was unsafe, the East Carolina Summer Theatre is making a dramatic comeback. A multi-million dollar construction project has renovated and expanded McGinnis Theatre on the campus of East Carolina University and 1982 will mark the start of summer theatre again. Productions are under the direction of Edgar R. Loessin, chairman of the ECU Department of Drama and Speech.
The troop of theatrical productions was the collaborative brainchild of ECU’s President, Leo Jenkins, and Chairman of the Drama Department, Edgar Loessin. A plethora of plays were packed into July and August, starting with Applause and My Fair Lady. The celebration continued with H.M.S Pinafore and Company. The showcasing of talent concluded with regular and matinee performances of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
