The Historic Savannah Theatre dates all the way back to 1818. The night it opened ‘Soldier’s Daughter’ and ‘Raising the Wind’ played to a packed house. Since the early days the Savannah Theatre has change its appearance a few times including a few times due to fire. The art deco style that you see today was installed after one of those fires.
