Constructed in 1924, the Town Theatre building is the oldest community theatre building in continuous use in the United States and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. As one of the largest auditoriums of any Columbia theatre group, Town Theatre provides an exceptional opportunity for entry level actors by giving them the chance to work on stage with experienced veterans, many of whom are working professionals volunteering their time. Many of Town Theatre’s current and alumni performers have appeared on Broadway, network television and in major feature films. They include Cats, A Chorus Line, Ruthless People, Hill Street Blues, and North and South.

A true community theatre, every performance holds open auditions, with all community members being encouraged to attend. There is also ample opportunity for members of the community to get involved behind the scenes. The Columbia Stage Society offers opportunity and experience in theatre to its members, many of whom participate not only as actors but as costumers, set and backstage crew, as well as helping in the box office, or as ushers and house managers.
