The oldest continuously running theater in the United States has been entertaining generations since 1940, under the tutelage of Don Stolz, resident director since 1941 and owner since 1946. From its home in a converted log stable, the company has grown from a summer stock troupe to a year-round operation. Box office hits have included The Front Page, Mister Roberts and The Odd Couple. The stage of the Old Log has been graced by many thespians that went on to TV and movie fame. Loni Anderson, native of Roseville, Minnesota, of "WKRP" fame, had roles at the Old Log, as did actor Nick Nolte before striking it big. From the start, the Old Log has been funded solely through box office sales. No fundraising drives, private grants or corporate donations have ever been sought to keep the theater afloat during lean times. In 1960 the original theater was replaced with a new structure on the same 10-acre wooded site. Still a rustic and rural setting, the 655-seat theater has spacious dining areas to accommodate theatergoers for dinner and pre-matinee luncheons. The facilities are also available for business meetings, banquets and wedding receptions.
