Best local theater in south Texas. One goes to local theaters to support family and friends, and hope the show is okay. The current Camille repertoire will entertain even you do not know anyone. Current directors are getting the best from their amateur players. Some...More

The Camille Playhouse never disappoints. Plays chosen for each season have something for everyone: romance, drama, mystery, intrigue or comedy. Great family musicals are always chosen just in time for the holidays and the talent of the community's youth showcased in the annual Youth theater.

The plays are done with local talent. Sometimes they are very good and sometimes they lack better talent. I miss the opportunity for the off Broadway shows in bigger cities but I go to these to support local art and I do enjoy them. There...More

My wife and I took friends to see "The Producers" in February. We were unfamiliar with the story, but had heard that it was good and had enjoyed other productions at the Camille. The acting and singing were indeed excellent! The characters were well-portrayed. However,...More

Quality plays have been put on since I started going and this is my third season. Staff and actors are friendly and they do great performances. There is a lot of talent in this area and they also encourage young people.

They have interesting plays that they put on here. The plays are with local young people and are well preformed.
