Family and friends went to see Camelot. The theater is fairly small and cozy. The performance was very professional and the actors very good in their roles. It was very nice to be able to see a live performance in a small theater. It brought me closer to the play. The building is ADA approved. There is ample free parking... More

Musicals and shows at the Dayton Playhouse are always of a high quality, with professional levels of directing, acting, music, design, and all around production. Admission cost is reasonable and you can see the stage well, no matter where you sit. For an enjoyable and entertaining afternoon or evening, I recommend this venue!

I go to a ot of shows there with my Mom. The shows are fantastic. In addition to the wonderful actors that perform, the costumes are great and the sets, I love the sets and backdrops. I have great respect for all the hard work these people put in to each show. Highly recommend.

This was the second trip to the Playhouse. It is intimate and you really get to see what is going on. I would suggest sitting toward the back so you have a better view of the full stage. If you like community theater, this is a fun place to go. Hairspray won't be around long so go soon if you... More

I've been going regularly for over 3 years now. They are capable of absolutely wonderful productions but some are uneven. I don't care much about the stage; I'm more interested in the acting, singing and directing. They have some fantastic talent. The small theater is wonderful.

We saw Dracula; the cast was great, the play wonderful. The facility & stage were a little dated but they are working on this. A really good time for just $17.
