Excellent choices of shows, done with mostly local talent. If you are in the area during the summer season, make sure you check out what is playing. You will not be disappointed.

HART puts on good productions with capable actors. The seating and temperature are comfortable. You're usually close enough to the stage to have a sense of connection with the show.

A beautiful small theater in which we saw a very professional, though involving amateurs, production of The Heiress.

This small theater has a wide variety of shows that run all year round. We have seen large productions like West Side Story and South Pacific as well as A Christmas Carol. The talent hails from all over the region and many times after shows you can visit with the actors. If you visit Waynesville, check to see if tickets are available, you won't be disappointed.

Great community theatre and amazing talent in a small town in the mountains of WNC. We just saw "Avenue Q" for the third time (Fox Theatre, Atlanta and Abington, VA previously), and this show was just as professional as the "big time" theatre. There is talent from Asheville and Cullowhee, home of UNC-A and Western Carolina University, as well as local talent. Each show is different, but we love theatre and are always entertained. There are a number of good restaurants in Waynesville, too.
