Recently visited Mill Mountain Theatre to see "To Kill a Mockingbird". It was a wonderful presentation. I have never been disappointed in this theatre house. If you are in the Roanoke area you should check out what is playing!

I watched The Sound of Music at Mill Mountain Theatre and was thoroughly impressed. The performance was great, the theater is comfortable and it was a wonderful evening.

Nothing like getting "Broadway for a bargain"!! Each time I have attended a performance I am always so impressed with the quality of the production. There truly isn't a bad seat in the house... and tickets are more than reasonable.

went for a musical and our seat were midway up. The way they did the seating it seems to give everyone a good view. Audio was great. The only drawback was that the air conditioning was blowing down on you. They are working on solving the problem but just in case take a jacket.

We were lucky and has some time after dinner to go to the show Swing. This is professional musical theatre at it's best. Song and dance without skipping any beats...(humor?). Wonderful voices, excellent choreography, great dancers. I even liked the simple subtle stylish costumes. What can I say the troupe knocked my socks off--better that NYC is so many ways:... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of receiving tickets to see The Sound of Music at Mill Mountain Theatre. The 'revamped' theatre delivered a superb show at a great price! The production, music, acting, and singing quality were of an extremely high caliber. The play had me laughing and weeping with the characters and the shows development. This theatre... More

Went to the Mill Mountain Theater with some friends tonight and had a great time! "The 39 Steps" is based on the Hitchcock classic with a weird, hilarious twist. Four actors play all the characters artfully with very modest props at a quick pace. The result is great silly fun that we all enjoyed and that I would highly recommend.... More

I am a huge supporter of Mill Mountain Theatre. I am a rising senior in high school, and I have been involved with Mill Mountain Theatre for over six years- doing camps, classes, and several of the performances they have done including Annie, Jr. and The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. I have worked with other regional theatres in the Roanoke... More

I've been a part of this theatre for most of my life, and the people of Roanoke are so lucky to have a professional regional theatre in our town. It's a great community to be a part of and the shows they put on are some of the best shows I've ever seen. Not only are there shows amazing, but... More
