About The Permian Playhouse
The Odessa Theatre Guild was formed in 1939 and produced plays until World War II.
In 1948 the group formed The Permian Playhouse and presented Noel Coward's Blithe
In 1957 with leadership provided by Bill Holm, Ed Costello, and Thelma Maxwell,
The Permian Playhouse of Odessa was incorporated as a non-profit organization for
the study, practice, and production of dramatic and other fine arts. Plays were
presented in rented venues and school auditoriums. In less than a decade it was
apparent that a permanent facility was needed to house the burgeoning organization.
A capital fund drive was launched that culminated with the opening of our current
home at 310 W. 42nd Street.
The first full-time Director, Neal Whiting was appointed in 1961. Enid Holm served
as Director from 1965 until 1977, and later went on to be the first director of
Texas Nonprofit Theatres and a celebrated authority on business management for community
theatres. Coy Sharp served as Director from 1979 until 1993. Enid and Coy will always
be remembered for their dedication and service to the Permian Playhouse.
