Definitely worth visiting o the last Saturday in September every year for the Chautauqua gathering. It's a shame the surrounding park is so run down. Get it together, Waxahachie. Why else would anyone want to visit you?

I was involved in multiple shows for many years. The performances were always held here. It's a beautiful space. The only downside is the lack of heat/air. Come prepared!

If you are looking for a historic place in "Hachie", this is at the top of the must see places. Had the experience of watching my daughter in a play at this venue...made it all the more special.

Beautiful historic theater. It has wooden benches and no air-conditioning, so dress for comfort. Many local groups hold meetings and performances, including Waxahachie Community Theater productions. Beautiful location for weddings.

Chautauqua Auditorium is a wonderful place full of history. Sort of an octagon shaped building with roll up sides to let a breeze in. I have been to many events here several of which I have been involved in. Old time singing, rock n roll...More
