Parkway Playhouse is a community theatre—your community theatre. We believe in reaching out and bringing theatre experiences to all who want to see and feel what it is like to get out of their skin, to understand what theatre is about, to participate in something they never have or have almost forgotten.

Reading Is Alive is a theatre outreach project created through Parkway Playhouse that will support the North Carolina Summer Reading Program in Avery, Mitchell, and Yancey Counties. Working alongside AMY Regional libraries, Reading is Alive is designed to provide the cultural experience of live theatre performances to an audience that would otherwise not have the means nor access to this cultural experience.

On the other end of the spectrum is Parkway Players that gives those thespians who, for whatever reason, are no longer able to perform in Mainstage performances. Parkway Players appears at venues around the two-county area, bringing a reader’s theatre to life.

What do you do if you’re a high schooler and have a quirky and humorous way of looking at the world? You Get The Hook, of course. Parkway’s own invite only improv troupe.*


* Get The Hook is an opportunity for those students who have taken and excelled in the Improv for Teens class.

Junior Theater Festival is an opportunity for students serious about broadening their theatre education through interaction with other young and professional thespians.

Our High School Apprentice Program offers high school students between the ages of 14 and 18 an opportunity to further explore the theatre.

The College Intern Program offers college students between the ages of 18 and 25 who are passionate about theatre, an immersive experience.

 Parkway Playhouse is for everyone!
