99% of the plays we have seen have been great. Red Skelton was nice in all the information they told, but the lines for the play were on cue cards on the floor. Somebody was not prepared for this play.

Food was ok at best. I had a steak. It was cooked as ordered but had no flavoring what so ever. The atmosphere was more formal than most.

We've attended 3 plays here. It is a small quaint theater so you feel very connected to the play. We were pleasantly surprised and look forward to attending another performance. They sell drinks during intermission in a side room that is beautifully painted. Love the history here too! We always eat dinner downstairs before the show at Tam's Backstage Restaurant.

Seating for around 100 people make this small intimate theater fantastic. The unique construction has no posts to block view. Easy to hear the actors. Up close view puts you in the action. Recommend for kids.

Went to see Cat's with my 10yr old, it was well done by a group called RISPA . The cast was predominately youngsters from about 11 to 16 years old. I have seen Cats in London and on Broadway These kids would give them a run for the money. The theater is small, so not a bad seat in the... More

Right in our own backyard. Shows are great the price is right. It's in an old school house. Backstage is the restaurant right there. Food is excellent .

A wide range of theatrical and musical performances, staged in a former school. With a high quality restaurant downstairs, a neat way to celebrate an evening out. Check for current production!

Smoke on the Mountain spotlighted the Sanders Family & the fantastic talent in Forsyth County. Skillet Lickers added to a most enjoyable evening. If you enjoy 1930's Gospel music & want a most entertaining evening, then this is the place for you.

Any input from the former Rosewater Theatre Owners is always a great success at this historic former school in Cummimg, now The Cumming Playhouse. This month the scenery was designed, built, and installed by G Scott Riley. His faux stained glass church windows are a masterpiece. Be sure to ask which Theatre Company is putting on the shows you want... More
