Posted: Mar 12, 2018 7:15 PM


   The State Theatre Arts Guild (STAGE) is gearing up for the 90th Anniversary Weekend of the Historic Oroville State Theatre April 6th and 7th.  The group of volunteers is celebrating the restoration of the theatre and its mighty Wurlitzer Organ, as well as the contributions of the community that helped make it happen.

   On Friday, April 6th at 7:30 p.m.  the North State Symphony with conductor Scott Seaton will perform a concert featuring the music of the great composer John Williams. Tickets are $20. $15 for STAGE members.

   Saturday evening at 5 p.m. marks a champagne reception for the Theatre's Anniversary, where an plaque featuring the names of those who adopted pipes to help restore the Mighty Wurlitzer will be unveiled. Tickets are $75 for that affair and include admission to the Silent Films that follow, with the debut of the famed pipe organ. Dave Moreno will be at the Console providing organ accompaniment for Laurel & Hardy in Two Tars, followed by Peter Pan (1924). Tickets are $10 for the film and $25 for premier seating.

   The Wurlitzer came to Oroville in collaboration with the Mt. Shasta Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society in 2011. It is the first full restoration project at the Theatre and has been a huge undertaking.

   The theatre itself was designed and built by California Architect Timothy Pfluegher, and will be one of just 200 theatres in the country to feature a pipe organ.
