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 regularly presents
independent and foreign films, new releases, 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.
