The City of Centerville was founded in 1796 and is now home to nearly 24,000 residents. Uptown Centerville located near Main Street (State Route 48) and Franklin Street (State Route 725) reflects the "Main Street" downtown era that shaped American towns and cities in the early 1900s.
Washington Township is the fourth largest Township in Ohio and home to over 61,000 residents. The historic Town Hall located on Main Street was originally the official building for township trustee meetings. Now, it is the home to a vibrant children's theatre and helps reflect the mission of the township to continue buidling toward the future.
The historic Town Hall Theatre stage is home to high-quality, year-round theatre opportunities for young people and their families. Theatre productions are created for young audiences and performed by young people and adults. The theatre also offers acting classes and performing arts camps.
