We took in a movie here (August: Osage County, which was great). They have a small snack bar with smaller portions and much smaller prices than the chains which was perfect for us. They also offer wine. It does not have the plush bucket seats of a big theater, but it is comfortable, clean, with very friendly staff and we... More

My husband and I had a great time seeing a first-run movie at the Playhouse (The Hobbit 2). Everyone was so friendly and helpful, the food was good and cheap, and the movie was great. I thought it was such a great idea for a playhouse to do while they're not having a play.

Went to the Brown County Playhouse for Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band new year's eve bash. Had a great time. Nice venue, open and homey. Spirits were a little pricey but that was to be expected. Haven't seen a movie here yet but plan to soon.

Our family watched the Movie Frozen here. They had Big Woods beer on tap as well as local wine. We were very pleased with the prices and quality of the showing!

We had such a great time last evening 12/7/13 with the Two Pigs Production company performing "It's A Wonderful Life". We talked about it all the way back home to Indianapolis (70 miles) and even when we woke up this morning! We love this playhouse so much that the distance we have to travel is well worth it. It was... More

Wonderful live theater such as "It's a Wonderful Life"; live entertainment from "Mellencouger" to "The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band" to "A Brown County Christmas Sing Along"; first run movies like "Bad Grandpa", "Blue Jasmine" and "Monsters University. This intimate venue, The Brown County Playhouse Performing Arts Center, reopened in July 2011 when the IU Foundation handed over the keys... More

My husband and I had a nice weekend getaway to Nashville, IN, and decided to stop in for a play. What a nice treat! With only 3 actors, the crew was able to make us believe we were watching an ocean voyage, interacting with a funny dog, and running from cannibals. Thank you!!!

my wife and I took our 8 and 10 year old sons to see ShipWrecked. We all loved it. Ate at the Ordinary, stopped by the Candy Dish and then enjoyed a night at the playhouse. I enjoyed the Brown County Brewery beer served in the auditorium.

My husband and I happened upon the Brown County Playhouse on our two day getaway to Nashville, and knowing nothing about it or the cast and play, we took our chances and purchased tickets. It was a truly wonderful way to spend the evening! All three cast members were professional, funny, spot on with their characterization, and very entertaining. We... More

We scheduled our annual October trip to Brown County to include a Wednesday evening so we could see a play and bought the tickets for "Shipwrecked" in advance. After a beautiful day at the State Park and then some downtown shopping, we settled in to the comfortable seats at the Playhouse and watched three actors unfold a most enjoyable story... More
