PRINCETON, Ind. (AP) - Southwestern Indiana officials who toasted the reopening of a newly renovated theater discovered hours later that someone had knocked a big hole in the building’s new facade.

Broadway Players President Fred Hadley found the softball-sized hole in the tile Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the ribbon-cutting for the Princeton Theatre and Community Center.

Hadley tells the Princeton Daily Clarion (https://bit.ly/1IkHj2r ) he contacted police, believing vandals had caused the damage to the theater about 25 miles north of Evansville.

But a worker with a contractor helping with the ongoing renovation of the 70-year-old Princeton building quickly acknowledged that he had accidentally damaged the tile with heavy machinery.

Hadley says the contractor has pledged to repair the damaged Italian tile that’s part of a $2 million renovation of the building.
