Summer musicals are always great and Mamma Mia was one of the best yet. I don’t know why you guys don’t video a performance and put it on YouTube after the show has completed its run. It would be wonderful advertising so people could see the quality of theater production. It’s worlds better than any community theater I’ve seen on YouTube. More...

Just finished seeing Mama Mia. Absolutely enjoyed myself. I had forgotten we had this avenue for quality plays &_ musicals. "Sophie" & "Donna" had great vocals & acting that made them easily connect with audience. It was a little painful to watch some of the cast counting steps in the dance numbers making them look disengaged yet the whole performance made those moments forgivable. Definitely recommend & definitely plan to take in some of the future events. More...

I Never Saw Another Butterfly....The story is so moving. You will be touched. It is a heart breaking story that is so hard to tell, this group of actors did an amazing job. You must see this performance to remember and to be inspired by the courage and the hope of so many children and others lost not so long ago. Their stories should never be forgotten. Great job to the director and all the actors who share her vision and bring to us such an amazing performance. Well done! More...

I just saw little shop of horrors last night and was thoroughly impressed. It starts and ends with an abundance of energy. You can tell how hard they worked on this masterpiece! Those actors love what they do! The passion is so tangible you can feel it in your soul! Go see this before it's gone! You won't regret it!! More...

I recently moved to Tyler from out of state. I went to see my first show at TCTC - Legally Blonde. It was well done. The actors were great, staging was great, seats were comfortable, and I laughed until my face hurt from smiling so much. I can't wait for the next opportunity to see one of their productions. The price is right as well. I'm glad I found this place. More...

This was my first time and I was not disappointed. "Rock of Ages" was filled with good music and comedy. Hard to stay seated and not sing along. Very talented performance by cast. Thanks to all that made this possible. Thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to attending another one. More...

We saw "The Second Time Around", on Sunday, May 7, 2017. Love the small theater in the round. The actors were very good, and we laughed all the way through. We will be returning.

PLEASE GO ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM FOR THE UPDATE OF TCTC. I have never been more disappointed in a production from TCTC in my 20+ years in Tyler than I was in Godspell. After reading the beautiful words of the producer, I was expecting something wonderful. His words do not match his production at all! I did not come to see an inappropriate t-shirt (IDK, IDC, IDGAF) on one of the cast members and certainly did not come to get a political statement shoved down my throat. I do not for one moment believe that a political statement represents the Gospel of Matthew at all. In fact, I believe it is contradictory. We walked out in the intermission, and we were part of a crowd doing so. Nowhere in your description of the musical does it indicate there are political undertones/overtones or I would have saved my money. I would hope that ANY TIME you choose to get political, you need to 1) know your audience, 2) ask yourself if your audience needs or wants a political statement, and most importantly 3) STATE CLEARLY on your website that the message is political so we can make informed decisions before paying $$ to see something we don't want to see. I am angered that I wasted money on this atrocity. It does not matter which side of the political spectrum I fall on, if I want political, I will choose to go to a rally. ***** UPDATE******A couple of months have gone by - we saw Rock of Ages today and I am thrilled to say that this is the TCTC I have known and loved for over 20 years. This was entertaining, perfect timing, the talent in this theatre is unbelievable - we laughed and cheered - they engaged the audience in such a wonderful way. I am so glad we went back - we have only had one bad experience and I think that's pretty good odds!!! More...

I absolutely loved the intimate atmosphere of the theater. There are no bad seats. Prices are reasonable enough that anyone can enjoy the show. I saw The Little Theater. It was a wonderfully hilarious production. I can't wait to see the next show. More...

I read "The secret garden" as a child and read it to my Kids years later. Thank you SO MUCh for bringing this amazing story alive. The actors/actresses were AMAZINg!!! More...

My daughter and I enjoyed seeing "The Secret Garden". We had been to see "The Little Mermaid" earlier in the year, and will go see "It's A Wonderful Life", too! I wish I could have heard the characters better, but with no mics, there's almost no way to control that. We were hoping to have a Meet and Greet afterwards, but there was nothing formal that way...we hung around long enough that some of the characters came out already out of costume, but we still recognized them and congratulated them. The young lady who played Mary did an OUTSTANDING job...so much to memorize and lots of emotions to show, and she is young. Lots of talent on the stage of TCT!!! More...

My daughter and I took my ten year old granddaughter to see this amazing production. The presentation, the characters and the music were awesome.

"Farce of Nature" is over-the-top silliness and fun! The cast does such a great job and so much is going on in this production that the audience gets to laugh no matter where they look or who the focus on.
