Or that Frankenstein’s monster himself, Boris Karloff, appeared at the 123-year-old theater? Come see the recently discovered and conserved 1913 Tuttle scenic curtain and learn more in celebration of Northampton's historic gem during a history tour led by Director of Marketing and Development Emily Curro and Technical Director Michael Abbatiello. Mark your calendars!

**ArtWeek is an award-winning, innovative festival that provided nearly 600 unique and creative experiences to community members last spring in 130+ neighborhoods and towns across Massachusetts. The events are hands-on, interactive, or offer behind-the-scenes access to arts, culture, and the creative process. ArtWeek is a way in which so many forms of creativity can be showcased in a truly affordable and accessible way for everyone who lives, works, plays and visits Massachusetts. Affordability remains a strong value of ArtWeek, with 90% of all the events being either free or under $25 in 2019, allowing an estimated 55,000 people of all ages and backgrounds being able to enjoy ArtWeek events last year worry free.

Tour Estimated Length: 1 hour.
