Elkhorn Valley Community Theater

Elhorn Valley Community Theater In 1982 a group of community volunteers formed The Elkhorn Valley Community Theatre. They performed their first shows at the Elkhorn High School, then Jack's Place and The Waterloo High School. In 1992 the old Misfeldt Hardware building in Waterloo was purchased, renovated and became the home of the theatre. With only 82 seats and a small stage, the theatre dreamed of a larger facility. In 2007 the old Valley Theatre was purchased from Douglas County West and a major renovation project began. The seats, carpet and stage were all replaced. New dressing rooms, a voice studio, a top-notch sound and lighting system were installed. Over a quarter of a million dollars was raised for the renovation, generously contributed by large and small donors, alike. Theatre activities include a full scale spring musical, usually performed in March, the biannual production of SCROOGE the Musical at Christmas time, and summer long theatre activities for children with our Summer Musical Theatre for Kids, now it it's 18th year. The theatre is all volunteer based and anyone interested in being on stage or working behind the scenes is welcome. Call Janice Lee at 359-2699 or email for more information. Visit our website.

The Elkhorn Valley Community Theater is located at 101 E Gardiner Street in downtown Valley.
