Surprising talent and showmanship for such a little place. Very intimate theatre with good vibe. Wine at intermission and yet very welcoming to children. Prefect local public theatre!!

A small, intimate theater which I understand is moving to a new, updated venue in 2017. The actors were relatable and animated. Wine and other refreshments at intermission were included in the price of admission. I would recommend giving their next production a try.

An intimate theater that performs productions six times per year. Actors from the surrounding area perform these shows. Very entertaining and growing into a new and larger facility in downtown later this year.

We were here recently for their production of "Bingo". What a great little theater. The actors were having great time performing, which was very evident to the audience. The tickets are very inexpensive for live theater. It's a small theater so there no bad seats....More

We have been to several good performances here, ranging from classic dramas to musical comedies. The space has been recently renovated which is a plus. Only 30 minutes from downtown Dallas.

There isn't much to do in this small Texas town so having this little theatre, with its live productions, is a treat. I love the atmosphere. It really has a quaint, small town feel, and that's a large part of the charm. You may recognize...More

Always a great production from a small town theater. Local talent along with folks from Dallas make this theater a pleasure. Cozy setting and very friendly staff. Well supported by the local community and with good reason.
