I have seen quite a few musicals at the Campus and enjoyed everyone except for "Rent" which we left early on. The acting and singing is usually exceptional for such a small theatre and one that stays in memory was the Patsy Cline story. The...More

One of my favorite places for a night out in Denton. I love our local theater and have been a season ticket holder for several years. They put on a good variety of productions including dramas and musicals. Denton has some amazing local talent.

The Campus is a gem featuring real talent. The renovated former orginal movie theatre of Denton has been reshaped for live theatre with every seat providing a great theatrical experience.
