Committee Sees First Phase Of Jenny Wiley Theater

{Pikeville, Kentucky}...During a meeting Thursday of the Pikeville Theater Committee, New York architect Steve Benesh showed his concept of the first phase of the planned $6 million Jenny Wiley Theater which is expected to be open by the fall of 2013. Benesh says it will take his firm four months to complete the actual design for the theater. The theater site is bounded on the front by Second Street, on the east by Division Street and at the rear by Hambley Boulevard. The theater will be built in three stages and will seat 220 people when it first opens, but, when stage three is completed, it will seat 330 people.
