I had no idea Highlands had a playhouse until this past summer. We were fortunate enough to see 3 plays at this quaint little playhouse. In the summer we saw Buddy Holly and the 28th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Both were just wonderful productions. Recently we saw Nunsense...it too was wonderfully done. This is a very small theater with incredibly reasonable prices. If you have the opportunity to see one of their productions I don't believe you will be sorry. They just celebrated their 75th anniversary for a reason! I will definitely go back next summer.

We love and support our local theaters and happened upon this one when visiting highlands. We saw Nunsense which was not only very funny and good but cast so well. They did a really superb job! Good singing, ballet dancing and acting. Nice theater, right in heart of town. We will certainly check it out when back in town.

Now in its 75th year, Highlands Playhouse is an established, and locally supported icon in the local community. Wonderful choice of plays during the summer and fall season. Now opening in the winter months as a movie theater, which is a boon to the community, since other movie theaters require a long drive through or down the mountains. Enjoyed great renditions of "Annie" and "Nunsense" ( hilarious and well casted). Audience participation was a real hit with a play about a local, county spelling bee. Located very close to the main drag and wonderful restaurant scene in classy Highlands, NC. Great place to visit while touring or staying in Western NC.
