Biographical / Historical
The William Edrington Scott Theatre opened in 1966. The theater was made possible when Mr. Scott died in 1961, leaving $3,000,000 in trust as the Scott Foundation to be used to help develop Fort Worth's Cultural District. The Scott Theatre Actors Repertory Company (STARCO) developed as a summer repertory theater in cooperation with the drama departments of Texas Christian University and Southern Methodist University. The theater attempted to establish it as a permanent professional troupe, but the company folded after three seasons. Directors of the group were Dr. Jack Cogdill of TCU and Jack Clay from SMU. The Scott Theatre, as it is now known, is still in operation and an active part of the Fort Worth Cultural District.
