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

I love the atmosphere of this theatre and the wonderful plays that are performed here. We've seen four and enjoyed each of them. I love seeing all of the displays before it's time for the play to start. I've learned so much more about Cumming's history.

Local plays, Ga Mountain plays are the best choices. Broadway plays leave much to be desired in way of staging and expertise.

The performances vary and some are excellent and others are very ... well, not so hot! But for the price and location, we've enjoyed going to the Cumming Playhouse and we've enjoyed most performances very much.

This is a quaint old school converted into the playhouse and the fabulous Tams Restuarant. A variety of offerings at the playhouse have something for everyone. The best way to experience it is to arrive 1 1/2 hours early and enjoy Cummings best Restuarant (in my opinion). Everything on the menu is delicious! The two are in the same building... More
