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.

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.

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.

Community Choir “Sing for Joy”
Be sure to mark your calendars for this Friday evening, December 7th, at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:00pm), when the Historic Anthony Theatre will be the setting for “Sing for Joy” with traditional selections for the Christmas Season. The beautiful Christmas music will be presented by a host of local Harper County citizens and the Chaparral Singers creating a Community Choir. Eric Kerschen and Ron Nibbelink two very talented local music directors will be in charge of directing the choir. It has been a few years since the sounds of the joyous Christmas season has been heard in the community on stage by a large choir. This collection of Christmas music will truly renew your sentiments of the Holiday season.
A second performance of “Sing for Joy” will be held on December 20th, at Chaparral High School. Holiday cookies and punch will be served at 6:00 pm in the CHS Cafeteria while being serenaded with Holiday solos, before entering the CHS Auditorium for the main performance at 7:00 pm featuring the Chaparral Choirs and the Community Choir.
Be sure to mark your calendars now so you will either attend one or both events being December 7, 7:00 pm Anthony Theatre and December 20, 7:00 pm at Chaparral Auditorium. There is no admission, donations will be appreciated.
These two musical performances of “Sing for Joy” will truly ignite the true meaning of the Christmas Season with the lyrics of these beautiful Holiday selections.

Anthony Theatre an End of Year Financial Plan
As 2018 draws to a close it reminds us to begin our end of year financial planning. The Anthony Theatre being a non-profit community project could be a thought in your planning. In January of 2015 the theatre took out a $100,000.00 loan to complete the balance due on the installation of the GEO Thermal Heating and Air Conditioning. Recently the proceeds from the Grand Lil’ Opry allowed the Theatre Committee to make a loan installment of $2,500.00 bringing the loan balance down to $7,500.00. Your donations, tax credits, and fund raisers have been a very important part in almost reaching the final payment on this loan. So you might want to think about using the theatre as a tax deductible item in your end of year financial planning that could bring this theatre loan to closure.
The Theatre Committee is very frugal as we continue to renovate and update the theatre to make it a more enjoyable community establishment. The committee is always planning how we can move forward on the renovation of the theatre on a limited budget. Completed projects in 2018 were: the hand rails going up the ramp, some lights on the marquee, and necessary electrical work. Your attendance at the events is valued as an energizer to the committee not only because we know you are enjoying this facility, it also allows basic expenses to be paid
We thank you, the Harper County community for your support and attendance, they both make a great difference. We are looking forward to bringing new and different events to the stage for your entertainment in 2019.

Doors will open at 6:30 to purchase your tickets.
This year you will be attending a very unique event that will keep you wondering what is next. The first exciting feature will be when the event curtain opens and Cowboy Joe,(gals he is really handsome)will be on stage to greet you as he is tapping his boots to fantastic Ragtime-Dixieland instrumental numbers, followed by special entertainers performing Ragtime Era vocal numbers. Then the curtain closes on the Opry’s first part of the program and opens to a memorable Patriotic production. This year the audience will find the Opry Crew Stage Hands quickly changing scenery between acts. Remember we have a 3-Part Opry production , the 3rd part of the event will involve your favorite western songs of yesterday. Only by attending this production will you learn about the many surprises that will be on stage during this final segment of the “Grand Lil’ Opry. You will find some of your favorite area entertainers from last year back on stage as well as several new entertainers, some of which were winners at the 2017 Anthony Theatre Talent show, some from outlying areas, and some have just been waiting to be asked to perform.
The “Grand Lil’ Opry” planning committee has a great time planning this event for your enjoyment, so if it lasts a little longer than some productions ,you will have to forgive us as we just couldn’t stop coming up with ideas for you to enjoy. So just buy yourself a large popcorn at the theatre’s concession stand and sit back and enjoy the talents of these very talented entertainers that will be appearing on stage.
We sure will be looking forward to seeing you at the second season of the “Grand Lil’ Opry”(3-Part Musical Extravaganza) on Saturday, October 6th, 7:00 pm at the Historic Anthony Theatre.

Grand Lil’ Opry Coming Again to Anthony Theatre
We might say by popular demand the second season of the Grand Lil’ Opry will be coming soon. As soon as the 2017 Grand Lil’ Opry was over, we were asked by many who attended when can we do this again. So once again take down the boots from the shelf and give them a few buffs and begin making plans to attend the second season of the Grand Lil’ Opry (3-Part Musical Extravaganza) on Saturday, October 6th 2018 on stage at the Historic Anthony Theatre. The Opry planning committee has been really busy contacting entertainers and we find it amazing the cooperation and enthusiasm we receive when entertainment contacts are being made. If you enjoyed last year, then be prepared to be surprised at the musical variety you will hear this year. The Grand Lil’ Opry will consist of 3 parts, Ragtime, Patriotic and Western each having their own stage theme and musical variety. An outstanding local instrumental group will be on stage to open the production. We have welcomed back local entertainers from last year as well as 9 new ones on stage for this year. The 2018 talent show introduced us to 3 new entertainers from Lake City, Kansas who will be on stage. You definitely will be in for an unforgettable evening with some very entertaining surprise visits. We might have to have chocolate milk and M&M’s on hand to entice our very youngest (2 yr. old) to perform. So be watching the paper for more details on the second season of the Grand Lil’ Opry at the Anthony Theatre. And be marking your calendar now for October 6th 2018 at 7:00 pm so you won’t forget.

Cowboy Joe will be waiting for you at the October 6, 2018 Grand Lil' Opry (3-Part Musical Extravaganza)
