Royal David Theater

Royal David Theater is the name being given to Sugarcreek, Ohio's largest ever attraction.
The proposed sight for this future attraction is near the Dutch Valley Restaurant and Carlisle Inn complex on the east side of Sugarcreek.
This will be a 6,400 seat one-of-a-kind theater. The emphasis will be providing family-oriented entertainment. Already in the planning stages are musical acts and even Disney and Broadway-style shows.
The expansive building will feature three seating levels, a large lobby with gift shop and even a 200-seat restaurant.
Members of the board putting the project together noted that the one thing that seems to be missing from the (Sugarcreek) area is something to do after 5 o'clock, referring to the fact that most all businesses in Amish Country close at 5 p.m.
Developers estimate that the project will create between 200-260 new jobs, and cost from $49.2 to $63.7 million to build. Just the cost of running water and sewer to the proposed location is anticipated to exceed $1 million.
Planners hope to see an opening date of September 2011.
Quite obviously, the opening date above never became a reality! In fact, the project has either died, vanished or is running under the local radar. We have neither heard nor seen anything about it since the original article in the Budget.
