The Arts Center's community theatre has been a part of the Rocky Mount community for more than 50 years. The Theatre offers a wide variety of productions, including comedies, dramas, musicals, and children's theatre,and relies on volunteers to continue its tradition of success. Volunteers are needed for all aspects of production including acting, set construction and painting, sewing and altering of costumes, props acquisition, stage management, and technical operations. Ushers, house managers, and concessionaires are needed for every performance throughout the year. For information on how you can be part of the community theatre please call 972-1156.
