With a modest beginning in 1984, where children played all the roles of Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” on the Courthouse lawn, Hamilton Civic Theatre has involved the community in a love of words, acting, and stagecraft. From 1984 through 1991, HCT produced plays in the Woman’s Council building located at 110 West Main. From 1992 until 2001, the theater group used the facilities of the old Texan Theater at 104 S. Bell. In 2004, Hamilton Civic Theater incorporated, obtained non-profit status, and purchased the building at 108 Ross Street in Hamilton, its permanent home.

Our arms are open in welcome for Players, Observers, Singers, and Roustabouts …
