During the early part of the twentieth century, Biddeford’s theater scene was particularly lively, owing in large part to the efforts and talent of Joseph Jovite Salvas. For nearly 40 years, Salvas produced, directed, and acted in plays targeting the Franco-American population all around Southern Maine.
