This is the 50th anniversary of Golden Chain Theater. We have been to three plays this season and now have season tickets. The schedule, sets, acting, directing, food, fully licensed bar, are just really always better than you would rightfully expect from such a small community. I look forward to each production and have my favorite actors now. Lots of... More

The theatre is spacious with table and chairs seating. You can select your seat location. There is a snack bar located outside the sitting area but you can bring your food and drinks... More

This rustic mountain theater sits atop a small hill on the 41 Hwy in Oakhurst. There is plenty of parking and handicap can be let off close to the door. Restrooms are old, but functional. Locals have been putting money and labor into improvements. The theater has an excellent heating system now, but still dress warm in the coldest months.... More

Just here for a weekend and stumbled upon this theater doing one of our favorite musicals-- the Music Man. The building is rustic, but the performances were top notch. Sets were minimal but very effective. The two leads were good imitations of Robert Preston and Shirley Jones, and the little fella that played lisping Winthrop was perfect. Great chorus, and...

Some of the plays are Murder Mysteries, Holiday favorites, and just plain, heartwarming performances. So if you are in the Oakhurst area, and you are looking for something fun to do with the...
