About Olney Theatre
"Olney Theatre Center enjoys a rich tradition of bringing quality theatre productions to the community for 78 years. The theater's founder, Steve Cochran, dreamed originally of opening a straw-hat theater in a relaxing country setting accessible to both Washington and Baltimore. On July 25, 1938, the theater opened its doors for the first time with a production of Ladislaus Bus-Fekete's The Lady Has a Heart, which starred Elissa Landi of ""movie fame."" Early playbills dubbed the playhouse ""The South's First Professional Summer Theatre."" "
