Community theatre in Pullman has a long and colorful history dating back to the building of the Pullman Auditorium in the 1890s. The Auditorium burned to the ground in 1909.
Although there is evidence of community theatre activity in the 1930s, it wasn’t until the 1950’s that a renaissance occurred under the twenty year leadership of Cal Watson. Ruth Vanderwall took over operations in the early 1970’s, focusing primarily on dinner theatre performances for almost thirty years. In 2000, Pullman Civic Theatre expanded its offerings with children’s theatre and musicals.
In 2005 PCT moved one step closer to having our own dedicated space with a generous gift from long-time PCT supporters, Mid and Del Rowland. The Nye Street Theatre was established and has become our venue for the more intimate performances we have become known for.
Pullman Civic Theatre continues our tradition of affordable live theatre with two-act plays, radio plays, classic musicals, and in 2007 we reintroduced dinner theatre back to the Palouse.
