Overview

"By the time the Atheneum Theatre, established in a new room next dooor to the British Whig on Bagot Street, opened its doors in 1841, we may assume the earlier novely of theatre had given way to the orderly and easy decorum of a well-mannered theatre-going citizenry at Kingston. Two years later a two-storey frame building was erected at the corner of Montreal and Queen streets on which was kown as the Theatre Royal until it burned to ashes on 8 January 1851, after which its productions moved to Kingston's splendid new Town Hall." (pp.217)
