Marietta’s Theatre in the Square, 11 Whitlock Ave SW, Marietta, GA 30060
Founded in 2015, Marietta’s Theatre in the Square was created when Raul Thomas acquired the historic building, originally called Theatre in the Square. Theatre in the Square had been a thriving nonprofit and the largest arts organization in Cobb County throughout the 1980s and ’90s. In the early 2000s, however, the theater fell into a funding crisis, and it closed its doors in 2012. This loss was a major blow to the community until Raul bravely took up the mantle of restoring the theater to its glory, with a new, contemporary set of ideals.
