Pratt Opera House seating plan in 1902

Via THS President Karen Colizzi Noonan who took us to some other small town opera houses during our  Western  New York Conclave in 1999:             

“The remnants of show posters and handbills still cling to the brick walls of the old Pratt Opera House in downtown Albion, decades after the venue saw its last performance . . .”

  1. I was able to visit this lovely little space above the Albion Town Hall several years ago when restoration was first considered. Although in derelict condition, there was a haunting dignity to the space – almost as if it was waiting patiently for another chance to shine. It’s thrilling to see that the rehabilitation is now underway. Looking forward to opening night!
