Who are we?
“Raise your words, not your voice. Rain grows flowers, not thunder.” – Rumi
Our goal at North Canton Playhouse to raise up community citizens who are responsible and contribute to the enrichment of the world. Theater experiences don’t start on Broadway, they start in our neighborhoods. And that’s why we need community theater.
— Lisa Paynter, Exec. Director
Akron Beacon Journal"Just when you thought live theater was a thing of the past, the North Canton Playhouse is reviving the heart and soul of the dramatic arts! There's a revival in the arts, and it's starting in North Canton, Ohio!"
Canton Repository"By far among the best theater entertainment available in northeast Ohio. The Wizard of Oz was spectacular. Casting was superb, the costumes superior and the performance breath-taking!"
About Magazine"If you haven't checked out the North Canton Playhouse, you're missing one of the very finest cultural experiences Stark County has to offer. This gem of community theater should teach the rest of the nation how it's done."
