Very talented pool of locals who make up the cast of plays performed. Funds raised go toward the ongoing renovation of the venue, the old Royal Theater in Benton. Well worth the ticket price to see some enthusiastic & amazing performances.

Truly enjoyed the experience of "To Kill A Mockingbird". A friend of mine was in the play and they did an excellent job. Housed in an old theater that relies totally on admission and donations. They do a great job!
