The Playhouse received a very, very generous gift from a local philanthropist to upgrade theStudio Theatre, add parking and make numerous facility improvements over a number of years. We are humbled and exceedingly grateful! To honor the family making the gift the Studio Theatre will now be known as the ‘Monroe Stage.’

To recognize the stellar work performed on the Monroe stage, Season packages will now include shows from both venues.
