Forest Theatre Reconstruction – Chapel Hill NC


“The Forest Theatre is a stone amphitheater structure built into the hillside on the eastern edge of the UNC-Chapel Hill campus and contiguous with Battle Park. Outdoor drama was first performed on this site in 1916 to celebrate the tercentenary of Shakespeare’s death. … Forest Theatre was rebuilt with Work Projects Administration funds in 1940 and further improved in 1948.”
