The performances at this theater are outstanding and Footloose was no exception. The acting, singing and dancing were excellent and it was a large cast. There is not a bad seat in the house. This performance was sold out. Highly recommend.

I have seen several live plays at the Temple Theater and have never been disappointed. Parking is hard to find if you arrive late so be early for easy access parking.

Temple Theatre is spectacular. Sanford, NC is so lucky to have Peggy Taphorn, artistic director of the theatre. The shows are wonderful and special events. Very professional and ticket prices are so reasonable.

My cousin and I took our mothers to a show! We thoroughly enjoyed it! We attended "Legally Blonde". Hope to see another show soon! It's great to have a local theater!

Staff is very friendly. It is definitely a small town theatre but the shows are good and the stage is easy to see from all the seats. The performances are professionally done.
