Panola Playhouse is a non-profit community theatre dedicated to producing professional quality theatrical experiences for both our patrons and volunteers. The Panola Playhouse, founded in 1962, is one of the longest, continually-running, live theatres in the state of Mississippi.



Panola Playhouse is a well-established theatre staffed professionals and we are able to produce productions of the highest quality. Members of our community have the unique opportunity to learn more about theatre production.  We invite any interested member of our community to get involved either onstage, backstage or in the front of the house.


Ours is an educational theatre, if you have an area of interest but not much experience, our department heads would be happy to teach you. We offer a variety of positions and would be delighted to have you share and expand your talents with us.


The nature of our volunteer needs requires that most volunteers commit to an extended period of service, but we do have a few positions with a lighter schedule. Please refer to our list of Volunteer Positions for more details about specific volunteer opportunities.
