This is a really nice venue with great performances despite the fact it is a small community theatre. Steven Lloyd does a great job managing this and choosing the performances and the cast. Highly recommend you check this out.

Season ticket holders for last 2 years of this venue. Have attended several performances, all of which have been wonderful. Great place to take out-of-town folks when they come to visit. Beautiful theater inside and out.

If you happen to find yourself on vacation in the area near Maggie Valley or Waynesville, North Carolina and you enjoy really good entertainment in a small theatre setting, you will want to check what's playing at The Haywood Regional Arts Theatre in Waynesville.

Our first time at HART- very impressive theatre. Beautiful on the inside, friendly assistants and every seat is fantastic! Will certainly return. This was an exceptional play and we are glad we attended!

For a small community theatre, the scope of the talent is amazing! We have attended several different performances both musicals and non-musical plays. Always done well. My only complaint would be the acoustics are sometimes shaky and the sound system can be unclear

Having dabbled in acting in my youth, I was exposed the very best and worst of theater and I'm probably overly critical when I see semi-professional and really over-critical when I see amateur theater. I have never been even close to being really disappointed with any production at this theater. I come expecting a fine performance and haven't been disappointed.

A nice line-up of shows during the season. Comfortable theater and not a bad seat in the house. Located near lots of nice restaurants making dinner and a show really convenient. A second venue is planned to be built right on the premises, which when completed will enable a show to be running all of the time.

Excellent choices of shows, done with mostly local talent. If you are in the area during the summer season, make sure you check out what is playing. You will not be disappointed.

HART puts on good productions with capable actors. The seating and temperature are comfortable. You're usually close enough to the stage to have a sense of connection with the show.

A beautiful small theater in which we saw a very professional, though involving amateurs, production of The Heiress.
