The public is invited to an open house Thursday, May 16, to celebrate the renovation of the Will Rogers Memorial Museum Theatre. Experience the renovation, including new seating and stage layout and electronic innovations from noon to 1:30 p.m. There will be a short program at 12:30. Food trucks will be on the grounds.

This is the first update to the theatre since it opened in 1982 as part of the new west wing and fulfilled a longtime dream of Will Rogers Jr., who was involved in the original design plan.
