A new Jenny Wiley Theatre will soon be under construction in Pikeville.

Theatre officials say they have been working for nearly a year to start the project.

The new theatre will be on 2nd Street in downtown Pikeville. It will be an indoor theatre that they say will provide additional space for rehearsals and educational workshops.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to have this kind of land in our laps and a way to expand what we do and to make what we do even better,” said theatre spokesperson Marty Childers.

Construction is expected to start next month and should be finished sometime in 2013.

The outdoor theatre in Prestonsburg will still be used in the summer after the new facility is built.
