I have seen quite a few musicals at the Campus and enjoyed everyone except for "Rent" which we left early on.

There really isn't a bad seat in the house. The entire interior is art deco style and the productions are always top notch. When you finish seeing your production,just walk half a block down to Beth Marie's Homemade Ice Cream to top off a wonderful evening.

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.
