The Manos Theater was completed in 1926. Grell was commissioned to paint three large French Fairytale themed murals. The largest of the three was painted into the proscenium arch above the stage and the two others above each side exit door. Many years later the theatre was renamed The Palace Theatre under new ownership.
The center stage mural is yet to be uncovered and conserved.
Many thanks to Teresa Baughman, Director of Marketing & Programing and the Westmoreland Cultural Trust for their hospitality and friendship during our visit in January, 2013. Greensburg, PA is a lovely town.
