About Us:

Here at the Playhouse, all throughout the year one can play a role in Starkville Community Theatre's many activities, productions, parties, and creations. SCT currently stages four productions per season, which run nine performances each, and a children's workshop and production each June. For the past nine summers, SCT has staged a fund-raising musical revue in July as well.

On the first Thursday of each month, an open general meeting is held at the Playhouse on Main. These meetings are open to anyone in the community who might want to become involved with SCT. We generally host two banquets each year: a potluck dinner at Christmas time and a catered dinner in May celebrating the end of a production season.

In addition to the meetings, shows and banquests, SCT hosts Just For Fun nights from time to time to give people a chance to socialize and meet new people.

In 2006, SCT launched a new and exciting effort called Fourth Fridays. Fourth Fridays is an open forum for area playwrights and other writers who want to have their works read and discussed on the mainstage at SCT. The events are open to the public and happen on the fourth (and sometimes third) Friday of each month. These informal, unrehearsed, script-in-hand readings are meant to serve as a useful took for writers who would benefit by hearing their works read out loud--and by hearing feedback about them from the community and the readers.

Over 600 season-ticket holders, in addition to many non-season-ticket holders, currently attend SCT productions each year. Our nine performances of each production have lately been playing to wonderful sold-out audiences in our 89-seat theatre, and the possibility of adding one or two more performances per production is under consideration!

This is a great opportunity to gain acting experience. Side note: not all their productions are family friendly and they don't post any information about that beforehand.

Cozy theatre. Wonderful performances. If you love live theatre, regardless of the play it is still an enjoyable experience. One thing to note those: not all plays are suitable for children to attend.

Four shows a year, check website for dates. Reservations are a MUST. Very small house (89 seats). Good shows!

It's never really open with shows or anything. Might be nice to someone planning on having a show but for me it's useless
