Since the Theatre Workshop of Owensboro purchased the historic theatre building previously known as Goldie’s Best Little Opryhouse, the organization has made several changes to the facility. Among other things, they’ve installed a new boiler, new sound system, new curtains and fire doors. In December, TWO announced the newest change to Owensboro’s oldest theatre venue: the name. The organization has determined that the theatre will be known by its original name, The Empress. “We wanted to reach into history for a name that adequately represents the theatre’s charm, elegance, and significance,” said TWO Executive Director Stephen Coppick.
