The neglected, Greek-style amphitheater at Saint Anthony in the Hills in Avondale is about to see better days once again, writes Richard Gaw for the Chester County Press.

The 2,000-seat arena is being reimagined as a venue for outdoor events.

Plans for the amphitheater were revealed earlier this week by representatives from MPH Events during their appearance before the New Garden Township Board of Supervisors. The group plans to do extensive renovations to the structure as part of its transformation into an entertainment venue.

During the meeting, John DiEleuterio of MPH Events presented a timeline of the two-phase opening plan.

The first phase would be mostly spent on upgrades. This would include repairing seating areas and installing a temporary stage. Family-friendly movie nights could start as early as August.

Phase two would revolve around the installation of a permanent concert stage, which would provide opportunities for more complex events.

“The amphitheater is an exceptional space and can host a variety of entertainment and cultural events, as a way to bring the arts directly to the community,” said DiEleuterio.
