The charm of the past with state-of-the art production at Pine Bluff's historic Community Theatre

Imagine the atmosphere of an early 20th century theatre with state-of-the-art lighting, digital video, and surround sound. That's what you'll find in the meticulously renovated Community Theatre in Pine Bluff, Arkansas,

Our restoration is functionally complete, but we continue work on tweaks and details. We suspect that in a building this old, attention to tweaks and details are de rigueur activities.

Just to be in the theatre and see its fine points is a fascinating experience and well worth the trip, but the real fun starts when the lights go down. We have scheduled a series of world renowned entertainers live on stage throughout 2014. You can see great live shows in our people-friendly theater environment.

First shows well received

Our first two shows, March 7 and 8, 2014 were enthusiastically received by appreciative audiences laughing and guffawing to the zany antics of Ron MacClosky, the nation's leading Groucho Marx impersonator. See our picture galleries of Ron's performances: Gallery-1, Gallery-2 .

Cindy MIller, an extraordinary singer brought her "You Ain't Heard Nothin' Yet" show to the Community March 21 and 22. The diminutive and talented Miller delivered her tunes with energy that filled the hall with lively enthusiasm. This is a repeat engagement for Miller who wowed the audience with her 2013 performance in the Pine Bluff Dinner Theater. Click here and here for pictures from the Cindy Miller performance.

Next up at the Community

Next up, April 11 and 12, 2014, is A Band Called Honalee, a Peter, Paul, and Mary tribute band that has garnered rave reviews nationwide. Click here. The band has notified us that one of songs performed will be recorded for the band's new CD during their Pine Bluff appearance.

Saturday children's shows returning

We are also pleased to announce that we are bringing monthly Saturday shows for children back to the Community. This time with live performances by Larry Sullivan, a renowned actor and author. His shows will be crowd pleasers with broad appeal. Our first show is March 15, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Tickets for kids are $10. Parents are free.

Like our theatre, this site gets frequent tweaks and updates. Please check back often. It is our intention to add information to the site quickly. See our 2014 performance schedule.
