A fire Tuesday night caused thousands of dollars of damage to the Sharadin Bigler Theatre, home of the nonprofit Ephrata Performing Arts Center.
The fire was reported around 10 p.m. In a statement, EPAC said no one was at the building, and there were no injuries.
The fire caused at least $25,000 of damage, reports LNP.
Like performance venues nationwide, EPAC's schedule has been sharply curtailed by the pandemic.
In place of live performances, it is offering "EPAC at Home," a digital streaming initiative.
A half-hour EPAC at Home's holiday special, "Santa's Surprise Party," debuts at 7 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Filmed in early November, it will be available until Dec. 31 on EPAC's YouTube channel.
