Ohio's oldest continuing summer theatre, the Huron Playhouse,
has been housed at McCormick Middle School for its entire
history. Dr. Frederick G. Walsh (1915-1999) of the Bowling
Green State University (BGSU) Speech Department founded
the theatre in 1949. Huron met Walsh's expectations for
an attractive site for the playhouse, and Huron Schools
Superintendent R.L. McCormick (1904 1978) offered the use
of this school.
The curtain opened on the first Huron
Playhouse production, Norman Krasna's hit Broadway comedy
John Loves Mary, on
June 29, 1949.
With persisting support
from BGSU, actors and alumni, and the local community,
the acclaimed Playhouse has provided theatrical experience
for thousands of students and entertainment for generations
of Huron residents.
