I have always found the theater clean and of all the movies I have seen there I have only been disappointed once. That was because it was a bad movie not due to the theater. Sometimes there's a line for drinks but they are always working hard.
I highly recommend OAT for any of the plays happening there! This summer Meet Me in St. Louis was fantastic - talent from all over Missouri and some New York actors brought in. Not to mention Rolla's local actors have some SERIOUS talent! Sets are always beautiful and elaborate for your viewing pleasure.I love the building - Cedar Street Playhouse. It use to be an old church and they kept the intricate, beautiful details of it's history. You really feel like you're part of something special with each intimate audience and production.
Great live, professional theatre in Rolla!! Affordable way to introduce your whole family to live theatre. During the summer they have professional actors from all over the country come in and they also do a fall show that uses local talent. Have been going for many seasons and don't plan to stop anytime soon!
