About the Theatre:
Established in 1974....Sock and Buskin Community Theatre is a volunteer group whose purpose is to produce, perform, and introduce theater to the community by utilizing local talent and resources.
In April, 1974, a small group of people produced the play entitled "The Fantasticks." Little did they know that community theater in Sidney would catch on. In the fall of that same year, the group signed papers and filed them with the State of Ohio creating the non-profit organization called Sock & Buskin Players, now known as Sock & Buskin Community Theatre.
The name Sock & Buskin comes from the Greek stage. The "sock" was a light shoe worn in Greek comedies, while the "buskin" was a laced boot worn in Greek tragedies.
