dc.description.abstractThe history of the live theatres in Waukegan is traced from 1866 through 1919. The period covered includes the peak seasons of legitimate theatre and vaudeville. Shows, performers, and the men behind the scenes are discussed. Emphasis is given to buildings specifically designed for live theatrical performance. Halls used for similar purposes as well as moving picture theatres are mentioned as they relate to live theatre and their audiences. Locations of where these buildings once stood and their relationship to the life of Waukeganites are presented. The overall attitude of Waukeganites toward theatre and their community at this time is used to relate present lack of support of live entertainment to declining community pride. Effort toward renewing bonds with Waukegan's cultural heritage presents itself as an important source of community pride.en_US
