This marvelous old historical building, previously named "The Hollywood", was first opened in 1941 with the movie "When Ladies Meet" with Joan Crawford and Robert Taylor. Many of these wonderful old movie houses have disappeared from the American scene.
We are now celebrating our 25th Anniversary as a Community Theatre and Fine Arts Academy. We offer outstanding classes for Children, Teens, & Adults in Theatre Arts/Acting, Musical Theatre, Dance, Piano, and Voice year-round. Scholarships are given to students each semester for our Academy. The facility houses two comfortable and well-equipped theatres:
Main Deck (seats 140)
Top Side (seats 64)
The theatre building has been renovated and restored from the original 1941 “Hollywood” movie house, with brand new interior painting in the historical art deco style of the past. It features new spacious dressing rooms, props shop, costume shop/storage, a dance and rehearsal studio and new sound and lighting equipment. This is a very affordable theatre with no sales tax and free parking.
We have been honored by the City of Dickinson with the 2001 Mayor’s Quality of Life Award and boast a 3000 + patron mailing list. Our "Fine Arts Academy" is the pride of the City of Dickinson and the surrounding cities of the Bay Area.
Each year we present an exciting season with a variety of plays, musicals, and special events. Our season includes: 11 season productions, an annual Gala Fundraiser, numerous Children’s Theatre Festivals and topping off the year with a New Year’s Cabaret Show and Party. The season also includes civic events to cultivate and aid in the education and enrichment of the community with the arts in mind. We proudly offer a friendly atmosphere where talents can be developed and appreciated.
