PRINCESS THEATRE - Raising the Curtain: THERE'S MORE GOING ON BEHIND THE SCENES

THERE'S MORE GOING ON BEHIND THE SCENES

What's going on at the Princess is not always obvious.  Naturally, there is ongoing work inside the main auditorium, but you have to go around back these days, in the alley behind the Princess, to see some of the major changes and work.


On my way up Queen Street Saturday, where I normally park for "Cruisin' In Harriman", I spotted new construction behind the old Margrave Drug store and the old Dr. Tappan office.  The construction is extended from those old buildings and down the side of the Princess Theater.

This construction is currently a new addition behind the old store fronts that will house the stage prop and prop design area, and dressing rooms for the Princess stage performances.  This portion will also house the new men and women's restroom facilities, while the front section (nearer the street) will be remodeled to form part of the newly expanded lobby.  This expanded section of the lobby will contain the TDOT “Trailhead.

How exciting to see "the dream" coming to life!  It's hard to imagine all the wonderful things we all will receive from this new construction.

So, while you may not see any recent construction activity as you drive by on Roane Street, you can see plenty going on in the alley behind the Princess!
