RAHS September Brown Bag Meeting to Feature “Fifty Years of Meadow Brook Theatre”

The history of Meadow Brook Theatre (MBT) will be the topic of discussion at the Rochester-Avon Historical Society’s lunchtime Brown Bag meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 1 from 12 – 1:30 p.m. at the Rochester Community House, 816 Ludlow in Rochester. Maryann and Thom Foxlee will discuss the theatre’s beginnings, as well as their collaboration on a new book celebrating the theatre’s golden anniversary season.

Meadow Brook Theatre opened in 1966 as part of a strategy to bring professional music and theater studies to Oakland University in order to complement its academic offerings. Nearly five decades later, MBT has become the largest local professional theatre in Michigan and is considered “Michigan’s Answer to Broadway.”

Bring your lunch. Coffee and cookies will be provided. The public is welcome to this free program, so bring a friend!
