Can you believe it has been 80 years since Oak Ridge Playhouse started out as the Little Theatre of Oak Ridge in the fall of 1943? The townsite of Oak Ridge, built as a part of the war effort, was never intended to be permanent, so who knew that the Playhouse would even still be around today?

After producing hundreds of show over the years, the Playhouse is still going strong presenting season after season of plays, musicals, and theatre for young audiences.  We even survived the pandemic when so many non-profit arts organizations became vulnerable.


Because of you and so many like you in the community who give back as patrons, volunteers, and donors.  Together, through the Playhouse, you have helped create a community where friendships are built, relationships are fostered, and where we all gather to take part in shared experiences of storytelling and to meet a common goal.

On November 28, GIVING TUESDAY, share in the common goal of helping the Playhouse raise at least $12,000 for much needed repairs and facility and production equipment improvements.
