One of my favorite places for a night out in Denton. I love our local theater and have been a season ticket holder for several years. They put on a good variety of productions including dramas and musicals. Denton has some amazing local talent.

The Campus is a gem featuring real talent. The renovated former orginal movie theatre of Denton has been reshaped for live theatre with every seat providing a great theatrical experience.

Quaint small venue makes you feel part of the production. Pulling from 2 universities as well as local talent for the musicals and plays. Incredible costumes--wonderful experience every time. Don't miss it!
