The mission of Parkway Playhouse is to inspire, educate, and entertain everyone in the community by providing quality sustainable theater opportunities.
Parkway Playhouse, located in the small Appalachian town of Burnsville, NC, is a haven of theatre talent. While people come to the mountains to escape, Parkway Playhouse is a natural gathering place to connect. Likewise, we are an extension of traditional mountain talents: singing, dancing, and, foremost, storytelling. By giving rise to energetic new voices and through a wide variety of plays and musicals, we invite our audience into experiences that are thought-provoking, adventurous, and entertaining. Together we re-imagine the world in every live performance, creating dynamic conversations that will last far beyond the curtain call.
