Welcome To The Historic Darress Theatre!

The Darress is one of the few surviving vaudeville stages in the country. Built in 1919, the theatre retains much of its original charm. Enter from under the stage and feel as though you have stepped back in time.

A full-service theatre for the arts--the original vaudeville stage is the ideal venue for all of our live presentations--plays, stand-up-comedy, and concerts. The theatre also presents independent and foreign films, and silent films with live organ accompaniment. The Darress Theatre continues to explore new avenues of entertainment while striving to provide the community with an ever changing array of shows and talent.

The Darress Theatre is also available for private parties, weddings, meetings, conferences, seminars, school functions, and fund raisers. We invite you to come and share with us the spirit of the old vaudeville stage.
