May 21, 2019


It's so very hard to believe that is less than 2 weeks, we will open the Outdoor Theater for our 11th summer of entertainment. We opened that first summer during the worst financial climate in our lifetimes and thankfully, we have a much better situation in DeKalb County today. What hasn't changed is our commitment to bring great entertainment of all sorts to the people of DeKalb County. This is a place where families can come and enjoy seeing old friends and make some new ones as well. We at the Outdoor Theater Board are looking forward to seeing all of you at one time or another this summer. If you have any suggestions at all, remember we are always open to listen to new ideas.

By Kent

See you at the theater!!!
