I found a home in the arts as a youngster in my hometown. They shaped my past and have given me a future. They have touched my life and yours, the people who live, work, visit, and create in our Community. We are enriched and enlightened. We tell our stories for all to hear and share our visions for all to see. Art is your heart and our home. - Mike Thomas, Former Producing Director, Maysville Players at the Washington Opera House
In 1953, Maysville’s own Rosemary Clooney, chose the Russell to premier her hit movie “The Stars are Singing”. Tickets were a mere $3 each and a grand
parade was held. The event is said to have attracted 20,000 people.
