Been to several shows and have loved most every one. Not a bad seat in the house, unless you are short and someone tall sits in front of you. 😂 Sound quality is good and just the ambience of the history is nice. Take time...More

A small and quite nice (about 160 seats) theater for concerts, plays, and other musical events. Theater is both owned and operated by the City of Cumming.

Went for the Senior Winter Follies. Would love to see a play. Costumes were great. Very talented group for the follies---singing, comedy, dancing. The Playhouse itself is a great piece of history (old schoolhouse) with restored rooms you can view before the performance starts. Downstairs...More
