“It’s all those kinds of things that really make the city unique. It’s the people, it’s the community that stays put and invests in it, and pour their heart and soul in it,” said Stephen Merriman, Co-Owner of Merrimans’ Playhouse.
The new location is in the Commerce Center on the East Race of downtown.
