“The Color Purple” was a joyful theatrical experience brought to life by an incredibly talented local cast! It made me laugh, cry, dance, sing and cheer what a triumph! Well done Centre Stage!”

- Rhonda Rawlings

"I just want to give a heartfelt thank you to this amazing staff!! I attended the final show of the Color Purple on 6/5/22. It was my first time attending a show at this venue so I was unaware of the seating & had a panic attack because of my anxiety. The staff was there to assist me & changed my seating for me & my Mother. I'm so grateful for them!! I got to sit in the front row & enjoy the AMAZING show! They were so helpful & I'm thankful for them!! May God please continue to bless this business & staff!!"

"I forgot how much I LOVED a small community theatre until last night when we went to see 9 to 5 at Centre Stage. I saw 9 to 5 on Broadway about 15 years ago and honestly enjoyed the show at Centre Stage more. The layout is phenomenal. There isn't a bad seat in the house. We will definitely be back!"

"Wonderful intimate experience of professional players . We love the venue. A great date night adventure; dinner and take in a show. Short walk from Main Street."

"The cast of The Color Purple production delivered an amazing performance! The experience was so emotionally moving and captivating that we saw the production a second time! Awesome job Centre Stage, cast, and staff!"
