Historic Anthony Theatre

Historic Anthony Theatre The Historic Anthony Theatre in recent months has replaced the roofing materials and repaired the front façade. HVAC completed. Still paying off loan!!!
The renovation of the Historic Anthony Theatre is being spearheaded by the Anthony Theatre Committee of the Harper County Preservation and Tourism Alliance (Harper County PTA). The committee has organized under their own 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, Anthony Theatre, Inc.. The volunteer group is able to receive tax deductible donations for the renovation of the Historic Theatre.
(41)

A 1936 Art-Deco Theatre with a stage. Original condition that needs some TLC to get it opened and running. Was built as the first "refrigerated air" space in the Anthony, Kansas area. The water cooled system went by the wayside when the owners built the Star Vue Drive-In at the north edge of Anthony. With that facilitie's deteriorated state, the goal is to get heating and cooling into the Anthony Theatre so it can be used year round. Therefore bringing it up to mechanical and electrical code are at the top of the list as next steps to getting it opened.

Mission: To preserve and restore the Historic Anthony Theatre; to provide movies and entertainment to the residents of Harper County and neighboring communities and visitors.

BarBara Wright Releases “Grand Lil’ Opry
To Theatre Committee Member Brandie Smith

Another overwhelming third season of the Anthony Theatre “Grand Lil’ Opry” was held Saturday, October 5th. We woke up to a rainy Saturday morning and by noon sure enough the sun appeared and at 1:pm the Anthony Chamber Fall Fest parade began down Anthony main street. If you attended the parade and were lucky to catch the sack of popcorn thrown from the newly formed bell choir the Ding-A-Lings green jeep float driven by Randy Futhey advertising their performance at the “Grand Lil’ Opry” Saturday evening. In the afternoon in front of the Theatre Brandie Smith(theatre committee person) was performing her beautiful renditions of Patsy Cline. Brandie resembles Patsy in looks and her wonderful singing talent.
Moving on to the evening performance of the “Grand Lil’ Opera”. The many guests began arriving as early as 6:00 pm and were greeted by a beautifully decorated Opry themed theatre from the ticket booth throughout the entire building. The Theatre committee worked diligently on Tuesday evening placing all these decorations which also included two red barns, windmill and wagon wheels on stage along with other western theme decorating items.
Now it was time for the performance to begin, the Master of Ceremonies, Gerald Wollf, announced the beginning of the evening events, beginning with a few fast paced bars from Brandon Gerber and his fiddle followed by a wonderful performance by 8 young dancers from Mindy’s Dance Center doing a line dance across the stage to the tune of, “Hey Good Lookin”. Outstanding talent continued on with numerous local performers along with the Woods Family from Sun City, Kansas and Marshall Mathews(Elvis impersonator) from Enid Oklahoma. The youngest entertainer being 7 year old singer Cooper Carothers, son of Kregg and Katie , and the eldest being 82 year old harmonica player Marvin Maxwell with the Omni Gospel Group,from Harper, Kansas. We understand our youngest entertainer Cooper said his “knees were cracking” as he performed a western song alone(never missing a word) with his Father Kregg accompanying him on the guitar. This was Cooper’s first time ever on stage at the Grand Lil’ Opry.
It is impossible to describe the high quality of outstanding talent by the entire group of entertainers that is hidden in the corners of our community. We are asked how do we find these talented entertainers, you might be surprised when we are listening to a conversation and hear a slight indication of someone’s talent, and the action begins, not stopping until the performer consents!! Just have to bring to your attention the Anthony Ding-A-Lings, these talented gals were from the Theatre Committee!!! Would like to evaluate each fabulous performance that appeared Saturday evening at the Lil’Opry, space is an issue. We only hope that you attended this event to hear the remarkable collection of outstanding talent.
This article will close with a decision made by yours truly. Seasons change and so does life, yes it is with sadness I now find it is time to bring to a close the dream I dreamed someday would happen, that a “Grand Lil’ Opry” would appear in Anthony, and sure enough on stage at the Theatre this dream came true. A very talented friend and theatre committee member, Brandie Smith is looking forward to carrying on the Lil’ Opry at the theatre. I just want to say to each and every one of you that so willingly assisted with carrying out my plans, volunteered so graciously your wonderful talents, and to the many attendees that have come to hear it happen, ‘THANKS A MILLION FOR ALL THESE WONDERFUL MEMORIES”,you have left with me forever. Love you all for ALWAYS being there for me and be sure to always have a ‘SONG IN YOUR HEART AS YOU TRAVEL THE TRAIL OF LIFE’. Happy Trails to all of you, BarBara Wright

Sixth Annual Talent Show Coming Soon to Anthony Theatre
This week when your calendar page is turned to February, the count down is on for entering the “Anthony Theatre’s Got Talent” production which will be on Saturday, March 2, 2019, at 7:00 pm. The deadline for entering is Saturday, February 23, 2019. Applications may be picked up in Anthony at Marshall’s Jewelry, downtown Harper at SCTelcom, and in Attica at the Citizens State Bank. This is a big opportunity for you to be on stage at the Anthony Theatre to perform your talent, and the judges just might decide your talent deserves first place allowing you a $500.00 cash prize, second place $300.00 and third place $200.00 cash prize, as well as beautiful trophies awarded to each of the three categories. These trophies are designed and made by theatre committee person Troy Langton, Classic Woods. We encourage all ages to take this opportunity to perform on stage possibly for your first time. In the past we have chosen several talent show participants to be a part of the theatre’s Grand Lil Opry which takes place in October. The talent show appreciates the willingness of three business establishments in the area to make it possible for the cash prizes. So make plans now to take inventory of your talent and to be on stage at the Anthony Theatre.
The next time you attend the theatre you will be greeted with another very attractive renovation project. Our magic theatre committee guys have installed lighting at the base of the new railing that goes up the ramp leading to the auditorium. This lights up the ramp so beautifully. Yours truly is still baffled as to how these guys were able to drill through those thick theatre walls to get the electricity to these lights! Another one of their MIRACLES!
Looking forward to receiving your applications by February 23, 2019, to become a new star at the live,”Anthony Theatre’s got Talent”, on Saturday March 2, 2019.
