History :

Among the pecan groves and cotton fields of southwest Georgia, live theatre flourishes under the banner of Theatre Albany. This award-winning* organization has offered outstanding performances since its inception in 1932. Theatre Albany is the oldest and one of the most highly regarded cultural organizations in the city of Albany.

After more than 30 years occupying several downtown sites, Theatre Albany acquired the home of Captain John A. Davis in 1964 for its permanent residence. This remarkable white columned antebellum treasure adapted well to its new role and, in 1980, it earned designation on the National Register of Historic Places.

Theatre Albany produces a diverse and wide-ranging bill of fare, including popular Broadway plays and musicals, classic dramas, contemporary plays, and even original works. The theatre is celebrating its 75th year as a source of entertainment for the entire Southwest Georgia region.

Today's visit was to see the play "Dancing Lessons," and it was outstanding. I have loved Theater Albany for more than thirty years. It was around for a very long time before I discovered it. I hope it will still be going strong long after I have gone.

The shows are great because you have people putting in 2-3 hours a night, 5 nights a week not because they're getting paid, but because they love doing it and it shows in the performance. With a variety of musicals, comedies, dramas, and more each season you're bound to find at least one show that fits your interests. Well worth the price of a ticket, and a great idea for a date!

My brother is the Beast in Beauty and the Beast. The theater is in the back of, what seems to be a historic house. It has a quaint atmosphere, any seat is a good seat!
