Illinois opera house to honor Citizen Kane director

WOODSTOCK, Ill. (AP) — The Woodstock Opera House in far northwest suburban Chicago plans to name its stage for Oscar winner Orson Welles.

The “Citizen Kane” director and screenwriter went to school in Woodstock. Welles started his career in 1934, directing on the stage when he was 19. Early next year the stage will be named “The Orson Welles Stage at the Woodstock Opera House.”

Opera House director John Scharres says Welles “had quite a big history here.” The naming is part of a larger effort to celebrate Welles through 2015.
