About Us

Parker Theatre (501c3) was founded in 1985, with a mission to create an environment for families to experience and engage in live theatre. 

Every year a portion of our plays are original works written specifically for our audiences.

Mainstage: Performances from October - May
Shakespeare: August & September
Drama Classes: Instruction in acting, voice and other techniques for ages 4 -16

In June of 2011, the historic Avalon movie theatre was purchased and an extensive remodeling project commenced with an opening of April 2012. For images of the remodeling, view our Facebook photo album.
