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.

The Playhouse was a school auditorium and has been transformed into a beautiful Playhouse. The events that they have are very good. It is a place to have a nice evening out.
