This is part of the "Hello From The United States!" series of boxes.

Nathan Hale (June 6, 1755 – September 22, 1776) was a soldier for the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. Widely considered America's first spy, he volunteered for an intelligence-gathering mission, but was captured by the British. He is best remembered for his speech before being hanged following the Battle of Long Island, in which he said, "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country." Hale has long been considered an American hero and, in 1985, he was officially designated the state hero of Connecticut.

Directions: From the front doors, sight the brick path at 295 degrees. Walk over to it, and start counting. About 48 steps down the path, you will see cement hiding what you're looking for.

Notes: If at all possible, PLEASE try to hunt this box on a Sunday, when the theatre is closed! It is in an easily discovered location. Rehide VERY well.
