The Arts Center’s community theatre has been a part of the Rocky Mount community for more than 50 years. The Theatre offers a wide variety of productions, including comedies, dramas, musicals, and children’s theatre, and relies on volunteers to continue its tradition of success.
Volunteers are needed for all aspects of production including acting, set construction and painting, sewing and altering of costumes, props acquisition, stage management, and technical operations. For information on how you can be part of the community theatre please call 252-972-1156.

The Theatre at the Imperial Centre is excited to announce the cast for our October production of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town. It is the 80th anniversary of this Pulitzer Prize winning play and we are thrilled to have it as our season opener. First produced and published in 1938, this Pulitzer Prize–winning drama of life in the small village of Grover’s Corners has become an American classic and is Thornton Wilder’s most renowned and most frequently performed play.
