The Camille Playhouse never disappoints. Plays chosen for each season have something for everyone: romance, drama, mystery, intrigue or comedy. Great family musicals are always chosen just in time for the holidays and the talent of the community's youth showcased in the annual Youth theater.

Went to see final performance of IN THE HEIGHTS. I enjoyed myself even though it was not my type of musical. Started out with RAP, some of the words were in Spanish, which I don't know. That said, the actors put on an excellent performance. Theater is small, open seating, I doubt if there is a bad seat in the... More

The Camille Playhouse has always been a fantastic turnout for us! The performances range from the classics to the more modern plays. We absolutely love to attend the comedic plays! We've always enjoyed the bar with an essential spread in the lounge. So load up on your snacks and refreshments and enjoy yourselves a quality performance!!! To find out more... More

This was my first visit to our community theater, and it was a delight. My daughter in law was visiting & I thought it a good opportunity to "sample" what our local talent had to offer. It was a play I had never heard of, "Still Life with Iris"; the actors were all teenagers; not a mixture to instill confidence.... More

Purchased season tickets for 2014-2015. I have to search to find out performances... I thought they would put me on their email list to keep me up to date, but no, they don't do that. And, they don't post in the community events of the regional newspaper, The Monitor. So it's easy to miss performances. Willy Wonka was bad... Glad... More

The plays are done with local talent. Sometimes they are very good and sometimes they lack better talent. I miss the opportunity for the off Broadway shows in bigger cities but I go to these to support local art and I do enjoy them. There are some very talented people in these shows and I think some of the shows... More

My wife and I took friends to see "The Producers" in February. We were unfamiliar with the story, but had heard that it was good and had enjoyed other productions at the Camille. The acting and singing were indeed excellent! The characters were well-portrayed. However, we found the content of the play quite offensive at times and the costuming, probably... More

Quality plays have been put on since I started going and this is my third season. Staff and actors are friendly and they do great performances. There is a lot of talent in this area and they also encourage young people.

Attended "Legally Blond" - a vibrant production with incredible energy. Attractive theatre in a park-like setting. Greeters worked hard to make everyone welcome in a great theatre lobby. Nice theater - good orchestra - vibrant production that sold out every show and demanded an extra week of productions. At times, the orchestra drowned out the dialogue.- I could not hear... More
