We produce six shows between May and October at the historic Parkway Playhouse, located at 202 Green Mountain Drive, Burnsville.

The Parkway Playhouse has a colorful history. Started by the Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina (now UNC-Greensboro), the Burnsville Playhouse opened August 1, 1947 with the production of Claudia. In 1979, the name was changed to Parkway Playhouse. It is the oldest continually operating summer theater in North Carolina.
