This theatre was built in the 1930s and named after the actress, Annie Russell, who taught at Rollins College (where the theatre is located). She herself performed on-stage opening night in 1932. Annie died four years later in 1936.
There have been claims for many years now of seeing a female ghost in the second-story changing room. (Note: this room is no longer accessible after a recent remodeling of the theatre.)
