"Congratulations to Cherokee Civic Theatre Rusk for being named Best Community Theatre in the Upper East Side of Texas for 2019"
We are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the dramatic arts. While we are based in Cherokee County, Texas, we serve the greater East Texas area.
The mission of Cherokee Civic Theatre is to afford opportunities for cultural and artistic enrichment in East Texas by providing a venue for local talent to produce live theatre for the entertainment of diverse audiences. Our goal is to educate both youth and adults in all aspects of the theatre and to encourage volunteers to learn and showcase their skills, both on and off the stage.
How do we do all this? We present live concerts as well as four shows during our season that runs
from September through April. We also offer a youth program each summer (Thespians N Training).
In between, we look for other ways to perform, to entertain and to introduce as many people as possible to the delights of live theatre. Our auditions are always open to the general public because we believe the more the merrier! We are always ready to welcome new friends and volunteers!
