Producer Bethany Hayes Smith, the Legacy Theatre is the fulfillment of a life-long dream to start a theatre company. Along with her husband,
Mark Smith, Artistic Director, they are seeing that dream realized.
"We are committed to providing this area with excellent entertainment
and we are passionate about the theatre being an elegant theatrical
experience!" Bethany and Mark have a long list of professional credits
in theatre companies across the country. They moved to Georgia from
New York when Mark accepted a position to teach theatre and film at
Landmark Christian School. As professional actors and educators, the

theatre performers and patrons. This is an excellent opportunity for

design of this beautiful new theatre located on Highway 74 in Tyrone.
The intimate theatre has 176 custom designed traditional theatre
