“Star Performances”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Went to the Mill Mountain Theater with some friends tonight and had a great time! "The 39 Steps" is based on the Hitchcock classic with a weird, hilarious twist. Four actors play all the characters artfully with very modest props at a quick pace. The result is great silly fun that we all enjoyed and that I would highly recommend. Being from northeast Tennessee, I make the occasional trip to the Barter Theatre and found the performances at Mill Mountain to be not quite comparable, but very creative and very, very good indeed! Check it out for yourself!

If you want to save a couples dollars, buy your tickets at the door. The theater is located in the Center on the Square downtown (not on Mill Mountain as I expected) around the corner from the farmer's market stalls. It is a ten minute meandering walk from the Hotel Roanoke.

“THE Theatre of Roanoke”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

I am a huge supporter of Mill Mountain Theatre. I am a rising senior in high school, and I have been involved with Mill Mountain Theatre for over six years- doing camps, classes, and several of the performances they have done including Annie, Jr. and The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. I have worked with other regional theatres in the Roanoke area, but Mill Mountain is far superior to them. Even when the doors were closed Mill Mountain Theatre continued its education programs and had an annual performance during the winter holiday, both of which encouraged the youth to participate. In fact, I believe it has been the the young actors and actresses of the Roanoke valley that have forced the doors at Mill Mountain Theatre back open. The theatre is located in the heart of downtown Roanoke, Center in the Square, and, I believe, is still in the hearts of many a Roanoker. The education programs are superb, the staff is extraordinary, and the performances themselves are of the calibur one would see on a New York City stage. I hope you take the opportunity to visit Mill Mountain Theatre - you won't regret it!

“Mill Mountain is back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I've been a part of this theatre for most of my life, and the people of Roanoke are so lucky to have a professional regional theatre in our town. It's a great community to be a part of and the shows they put on are some of the best shows I've ever seen. Not only are there shows amazing, but they have an excellent conservatory program with summer camps and classes such as musical theatre performance, acting, dance, and more. Classes and camps for Kindergarten through adult. Mill Mountain Theatre is back and more alive than ever. Don't miss out!

“Mill Mountain Theater - A Night at the Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

With the newly renovated Center in the Square open, Mill Mountain Theater has opened it's doors again to the Trinkle Main Stage and is once again producing professional theater in downtown Roanoke. This month we went with a group of 25 to see the Marvelous Wonderettes. We started the evening at a local eatery by having appetizers and drinks and then walked over to a fun filled evening of a music and comedy. MMT consistently delivers quality theater with a great value. To see what is playing next, checkout their web page: http://millmountain.org/
