I just found an performance announcement for my great grandfather, Noel Lester, in the Feb. 10 1914 Daily Capital Journal. He played one magic show in the Wexford. This is the earliest performance date I have found.

According to an article in the Lebanon Daily News (Lebanon, Pennsylvania Mon, Aug 15, 1921 – Page 8), my great-grandfather Lester MacDonald (a.k.a. Noel Lester, The Great Lester)married Alice May Brown (a.k.a. Alice Hayward, Alice MacDonald, Alice Lester)in the Lincoln Theater. He was a magician-illusionist and Alice was his assistant. My grandmother, Virginia, worked behind the scenes with costumes and props. I would sincerely appreciate any information regarding the theater’s history, especially pictures.
