I enjoy this theatre and the performances that I have seen there. They are mostly quite good (Shakespearean attempts, an exception). The community theatre relies on some professional actors as well as theatre students from the U of North Texas. Admission is very modest. All...More

I have seen quite a few musicals at the Campus and enjoyed everyone except for "Rent" which we left early on. The acting and singing is usually exceptional for such a small theatre and one that stays in memory was the Patsy Cline story. The...More

This theater is wonderful! It's small enough to be cozy and intimate, beautifully refurbished and lovingly kept up by staff and volunteers alike. The performances are notoriously wonderfully done, in this amazing little treasure. Sound quality is amazing and the only thing lacking is enough...More

Which participants? I believe the organizations have boards that make decisions. There are tryouts for the parts in the performances. The venue can be rented, contact the Greater Denton Arts Council for rates.
