The Collins Theatre is a remnant from the old vaudeville and early movie days. It has been a site for live productions off-and-on from 1925 and on a permanent basis since the late 1970s. The stage area encompasses approximately 800 sq. ft. with a 29 ft. wide presidium. Spacious dressing rooms and sitting area for the performers are available in the basement of the Collins. We do allow renters to display and sell their products in the lobby of the theatre. We provide tables for set up if needed at no extra charge.

At this time the theatre seats 543 with plans to remove 26 seats to allow construction of a sound booth, leaving 517. Not included in this total are several special seating and ADA seating locations. Included in the seating count are 140 balcony seats.

The theatre is equipped with modern lighting and sound equipment available with rental. A lighting/sound technician is available upon prior arrangement and is not included in rental fees. We require the use of these technicians when special light and sound is needed. Our contract obliges the theatre to provide only house sound and basic in-house lighting. Special sound and lighting set-up must be handled through our technicians. The lead technician's contact information is available on request.

Thanks to the generosity and support of First National Bank there is ample parking around the theatre.
