This is the 50th anniversary of the North Shore Music Theatre. For fifty years now the music theatre has been opening its doors to let the people of Beverly in to witness the entertainment of the theatre. The theatre has brought many musicals to life and has brought famous people as well. Since it’s opening in 1955 the theatre has been a popular place to have a night out on the town. As long as there are people who want to be entertained and there are the people who want to entertain the North Shore Music theatre is going to continue to live for another fifty years. The theatre has become immortal to Beverly residents. Whenever you hear Beverly you think of North Shore Music Theatre, "the theater in the ‘round". And in fifty years when you hear Beverly you will think of North Shore Music Theatre, "the theatre in the ‘round".
The actors and performers come from all over the country to perform at the theatre. People such as Bill Cosby, B.B. King, Loretta LaRoche, and many many more have come to perform. The theatre provided an experience like none other. Not only does it entertain, but it teaches. The theatre offers internships to college graduates. For the younger children the theatre offers the chance to star in children shows and even adult shows. Today not only are Beverly residents coming to the theatre, but people from all over New England and even other countries. The theatre has not only provided entertainment to the masses. North Shore Music Theatre has provided jobs to actors, directors, choreographers, and even people who help to keep the theatre up and running.
This picture is only a timepiece for 2005. However the theatre will continue to stand and that will not change, but the shows will.
