Theatre Opportunities for Everyone
Inver Grove Heights Community Theatre is a program of IGH Community Education. We are delighted to be able to offer theatre opportunities to our local and surrounding communities. Simley Performing Arts Center is where we stage our productions and this wonderful venue offers a large stage, pit, and seating for over 700!
While starting a community theatre had been a goal for many people in IGH, it wasn't until 2018 that we had our inaugural production – Little Shop of Horrors – directed by Jim Davis, one of the founders of our organization. Cabaret followed in 2019, and then we had a 2-year wait (COVID!) before producing a tremendously successful production of RENT in July 2022.
We are committed to growing our community theatre group and bringing high-quality, affordable theatre to Inver Grove Heights and nearby communities. We welcome anyone who is interested in being part of the theatre, on stage or off, and invite you to Contact Us to share your time and talent with our young, growing organization!
