Kelly Strayhorn Theater celebrated 100 years of the Regent Theatre—the building KST calls home—with a community day celebration and a toast. KST also allowed guests to participate in “Capsule 15206,” a time capsule where patrons submitted their favorite memories of the neighborhood.
Residents and friends of the community were welcomed to join KST in celebrating the Regent Theatre centennial on Oct. 11 and beyond at the theater’s Penn Avenue location in East Liberty.
Patrons enjoyed family-friendly entertainment by Soundwaves Steelband and the YWCA Lighthouse Project, toured the historic building, and added memories to the time capsule.
The first 100 members who attended received complimentary vouchers to upcoming “KST Presents” performances.
Kelly Strayhorn Theater also invited the community to join them in a toast to honor the patrons, leaders and all those who have helped support the theater’s mission of providing the community with quality arts and cultural experiences.
