A few years ago our son was performing with the orchestra in a Musical Theater of Denton production. It had been a while since our last visit to the Campus Theater, we'd only gone sporadically, but so enjoyed the production and the venue that we bought season tickets to MTD and have been attending productions regularly. It is a gem, and we highly recommend it.

I enjoy this theatre and the performances that I have seen there. They are mostly quite good (Shakespearean attempts, an exception). The community theatre relies on some professional actors as well as theatre students from the U of North Texas. Admission is very modest. All seats have a good view of the stage. The confection stand offers soft drinks as well as beer and wine--all at low prices.

I've been pleased by this theater. The seats are comfortable, the sightlines excellent and the acoustics are very good. The people who manage the productions do a very nice job given Denton's relatively small size. I suspect having a university here that has a strong entertainment program helps a lot, especially on the musicals.

This is a former movie theater, and while reconfigured into an intimate Broadway style theater, it retains its original interesting architecture (check out the lobby ceilings and floors, and the theater walls). Home to many events, I mostly see shows by Denton Community Theater and Music Theatre of Denton, which generally contain a lot of talent and are first rate. But due to how it's run, who you know, who's sleeping with who, etc, an occasional production is poorly casted or directed, and of course, when it's all volunteer, some say "They should just be glad I showed up at rehearsals!" That being said, I am rarely disappointed and am appreciative that the musicals have live musicians, the sets have an actual carpenter and scene shop, and the crowds are part of the excitement.

Took my wife of 52 years on our first date to this theater. It has been restored beautifully serving as a venue for the local theater company.
