EVERETT, Wash. -- Performers will once again take the stage at the 113-year-old Historic Everett Theatre. The theatre is now under new ownership and is booking performers. Theatre manager Curt Shriner said the plan is to fix up the theatre and attract a new audience.
“It was within a month of being gone forever,” Shriner said. "She's been grand over the 113 years and we want to bring her back."
Shriner wants to book popular entertainers, but at an affordable price for families. The Little River Band is set to perform in April. Shriner said they’ve also booked other musicians, including blues singer Curtis Salgado.
"Our intent is to get it to where it is a destination where people are going to find out that they have some place to go in Everett," Shriner said.
Shriner hopes to make several upgrades to the 799 seat theatre, including a new sign out front and new production equipment.
