“A Magnificent Season!” 

 In July of ‘76, Howard Dallin was appointed Artistic Director of Persephone Theatre, and the search began for a suitable theatre home. 

 In August 1976, plans were made to present the third season in the Co-op Warehouse on 1st Ave & Duke Street. These plans were dashed when the space could not be brought into alignment with the requirements of the Provincial Fire Commissioner. However, the first two productions of the season were presented in the Mendel Art Gallery.  

 In February, 1977, the theatre again began a search for a home.  The Medal Art Gallery, because of its own timetabling, could no longer be made available to the growing theatre.  In March Persephone Theatre rented the St. Thomas Wesley Church Hall.  The theatre soon found that the acquisition of a permanent facility greatly enhanced its programming, but at the same time presented a very difficult financial burden.
