Georgetown enjoys wonderful live theatre performances in the local Georgetown Palace Theatre as well as in the two performing arts theatres at Southwestern University’s Sarofim School of Fine Arts. Between the two, there are musicals, dramas, comedies, and more throughout the year.
Southwestern University’s Sarofim School of Fine Arts has a Theatre Department that nurtures students’ creativity in the classroom and brings it alive on the stage. From family-friendly to funny to provocative to original dramatic productions, the talented faculty, students, and guest artists who star in Southwestern’s theatre productions are a gift to Georgetown residents and visitors.
The Georgetown Palace Theatre offers live theatre productions year-round. The quality of the acting, directing, and production earns impressive reviews. In addition to the main stage lineup, the Palace has put together fun-filled musical performances and non-musical plays that are sure to entertain at the Palace Playhouse, right across the street from the historic theatre.
Between the Sarofim School of Fine Arts offerings at Southwestern University and the Palace Theatre productions, theatre in Georgetown is thriving, with high quality options for all tastes.
