Greencastle in Putnam County, Indiana — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Putnam County Playhouse (PCPH)
In 1981, Mr. Hazel Day Longden made a gift of property and two barns on Round Barn Road to PCPH. For two seasons, Playhouse productions were presented on an outdoor stage on the property with the audiences seated on bleachers. With the great support of the community of Greencastle, thousands of volunteer hours, and many individual donations, the Hazel Day Longden Theatre was dedicated and opened on June 4, 1983.
Since that time, Putnam County Playhouse has presented a program of four productions each summer
These productions have given local performers, musicians, and technicians opportunities to practice their craft. All participants are volunteers. With the support of local businesses, community leaders, service organizations, and schools, Putnam County Playhouse and its Board of Directors pledge to continue to provide these same opportunities to those in the county and the surrounding area.
Erected by Heritage Preservation Society.
