Community comes together to “Relight the Liberty”

Members of The Liberty Theater Company strut their stuff on Main Street in Hailey. The troupe is spearheading an effort to save the iconic Liberty Theater.

The red, white and blue neon lights of the Liberty Theatre at dusk have for many years drawn audiences from the Wood River Valley—and well beyond—to shows of all kinds.

Built in 1938, and for a time owned by actors Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, the Liberty has deep cultural roots here. The renowned Company of Fools theater group had a home there until the building was donated to the Sun Valley Museum of Art, which hopes in turn to hand it over to a local group of inspired theater professionals, known as The Liberty Theatre Company, many of whom have trod its boards over the years.

It will be a fine home indeed for the troupe, if they can keep the lights on and get some folks in the seats.
