Francis Wilson Playhouse makes traditional theater available to the community and builds and enhances the community's cultural image by offering a season of eight main stage productions. About 14,000 people a year see shows in the 182-seat theater. Opened in 1930, the Playhouse annually includes at least two to three musicals and a family-oriented program in December. Auditions are open to the community and volunteers are welcome in all areas of theater production. A four-week summer theater workshop is given for middle school age students.
