Read the Governor’s official announcement.

The Hippodrome/Colony Historical Theatre Association is honored by Governor John Kasich’s selection of Peoples Bank Theatre as the venue for his 2016 State of the State address on April 6. The HCHTA and Peoples Bank Theatre are proud to be able to host the Governor, members of the Ohio General Assembly, and their guests in downtown Marietta.

Since 2012, Governor Kasich has taken the State of the State on the road to the communities of Steubenville, Lima, Medina, and Wilmington, showcasing success stories across the state of Ohio. The HCHTA and Peoples Bank Theatre are delighted that the spotlight will be shining—quite literally—on our stage as we celebrate the recent successes of the preservation and reopening of this historic cultural facility, which was made possible, in part, by support from the Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credit Program, the Ohio Development Services Agency, the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission and the Ohio Arts Council. It is a privilege to be able to welcome Governor Kasich and the Ohio General Assembly to Peoples Bank Theatre for what will indeed be a historic day for our community.

Tickets the Governor’s State of the State address are available by lottery through the Governor’s office.
