Genesius Theatre is a Performance Venue that specializes in Musical Theatre. The theatre doubles as a learning center for kids by providing 2-3 kids / teen performances and 4-6 week kids summer theatre camp every year. The "Genesius Difference" is the up-close atmosphere of the performances. We trust in the power of this inspiring & dynamic medium to transform the artists who create it, the audiences who enjoy it, and the patrons who support it.

Visited this theatre for the first time as they were putting on my favorite musical Rock of Ages. The production was top notch with a great cast of mostly local talent that really sells the show. I've seen this show on Broadway and this cast...More

Nice small community theater with local actors and staff. Air conditioned and snacks/soda sold in lobby. Lighting could have been brighter in the theater itself.

Sure it's quaint with only 100 seats but you'll never get that kind of in-the-moment feeling at any other venue. It's one of the best community theatre experiences for any adult or child. You should see the different types of shows they produce for all...More

I just love the Genesius theater! It is a small community theater which seats 100 people. During showtime, one is right there! I have seen "Rent" - excellent; "Hairspray" even better with fantastic hair and wigs done by local salons. Great acoustics. After the shows,...More

Fun place to go with young children. My parents used to take me here all the time when I was younger to see the shows. Terrific shows and a good place for an afternoon out with family.
