7th Street Theatre > 2010

Original Stage Floor Removal

On September 18, 2010, volunteers and board members removed the original Douglas Fir tongue & groove flooring.  The original floor had seen better days and had become a safety hazard to performers.  It was replaced with maple.  The front 8 feet of the stage still has the original maple flooring.



Stencils are done

The lobby animal stencils are now complete! EverGreene took off for a short time and just finished a few jobs including the stencils. There are four different animals painted on the walls of the 7th Street Theatre. Here’s the only information we’ve found regarding their background — The Hoquiam American, July 5, 1928: Bordering the upper walls of the lobby are stenciled likeness of the fabled ornythorinkus, vamupus cat and sidehill gouger, conceived by modern man as having once populated the forests and mountains of the Olympic Peninsula.
