The Valley Playhouse

Harrisonburg's Community Theater


Welcome to the Valley Playhouse, the premier live theater for Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. The Valley Playhouse was founded in 1966 by a group of James Madison University faculty members from the departments of Theater and Speech Communication. They were known as the Valley Players. Plays were performed in different venues until the mid-1990s when the group renovated a building at 111 East Water Street. Learn more about our history on our About Us page!


This fall dare you take a journey through the delightfully twisted world of one of America’s greatest literary giants? If so, The Valley Playhouse invites you explore the dark corners of humanity with An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe, by Robert Mason. 
Masons’ adaptations bring to life some of Poe’s most memorable short stories including The Fall of the House of Usher, The Cask of Amontillado, and the unforgettable The Tell Tale Heart. 
Prepare to be chilled to the bone as some of the most unusual characters, nightmare inducing stories and haunting images appear before you on the stage of the Court Square Theater this Halloween season.
This production is recommended for mature audiences only.
