Renaissance Performing Arts will reveal a virtual tour of its theatre on Friday, September 11 as part of the Ohio Open Doors program of The Ohio History Connection.

The Ohio History Connection created Ohio Open Doors in 2016 to promote and inspire pride in Ohio’s heritage and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act. “Ohio Open Doors shares stories of important landmarks right in our backyard, highlighting the history and unique nature of some of Ohio’s most treasured historic places,” says Burt Logan, executive director and CEO of the Ohio History Connection.

This year, in addition to hosting virtual content from the full range of historic places and special landmarks, they are highlighting Ohio’s unparalleled collection of historic theatres and opera houses. “Our hometown theatres are gathering places, social centers, and a bastion for Ohio’s arts and culture. These historic places help define and distinguish our communities by building a strong sense of identity. They need our support during this time of extended closure.”

Starting on September 11, the Renaissance will display a virtual tour of the theatre on its website. Viewers will gain a new perspective on the historic theatre, as well as to areas not often seen by the public.

There are many more historic theatres and organizations participating in Ohio Open Doors with live events, virtual events, and tours. To find out more about Ohio Open Doors, go to, or contact The Ohio History Connection.
