Biography/HistoryThe Little Country Theatre was dedicated at North Dakota Agricultural College on February 10, 1914. Since the chapel in Old Main was not being used, Professor A.G. Arvold decided that was the place to set a permanent theatre at NDAC. Through his efforts, the chapel was transformed into a theatre, eventually seating 350. Within ten years the theatre plant had grown and occupied most of the second and third floors of Old Main. In addition to the theatre proper, its adjuncts included the Lincoln Log Cabin, the Ibsen Room, the Green Room, the Village, the Library, the Tower Study, the main office and makeup room.
