Welcome to Theatre98!
Community theatre in Fairhope dates back to a group called The Paupaukewian Minstrels in 1912. The Fairhope Little Theatre was founded in 1935, followed by the Baldwin County Theatre Arts Association in 1952. Theatre 98 was founded in 1960, when existing theatre groups on the Eastern Shore merged to form a new organization. Betty Jo Wolff, the founder of Page and Palette bookstore, was the first president of Theatre 98, and remained active in the group for many years. Other founding volunteers included Vernon and Nancy Head, Annie (Butch) Sheldon, Dan Isherwood, Martha Hill, and Claude Evans.

This new play, set in The Metropolitan Museum, brings famous art to life—from lovelorn Impressionist paintings to bickering tapestries to an Egyptian queen who doesn’t want to go back into her sarcophagus. Add in assorted museum guards, visitors, and artists, and stranger things than you can possibly imagine begin to happen…
THE CAST WILL SOON BE ANNOUNCED!
