About Us

Signal Mountain Playhouse was established in 1972 to provide activity for the community youth in the summer, and now has children of all ages participating in bringing quality family entertainment to our community.  Welcome to our little place in the woods.

The Signal Mountain Playhouse is a not-for-profit volunteer organization.  The Playhouse operates with a board of twenty four members, elected for three year terms and rotating eight members each year. This is a working board, with each member directly involved with a specific responsibility in the production of a show.

The Purpose of the Signal Mountain Playhouse is to produce plays and similar activities so youth and adults may participate as members of the cast or in supporting activites, to educate and train young people through association with adults who are also participating, and to provide quality entertainment to people of all ages.

These plays and promotions of other types of entertainment will be presented using casts and crews who are residents of the Mountain to the extent feasible. All income shall be used only for the purpose of enhancing production quality, furthering the growth of the organization, and for purposes deemed appropriate by the Board of Directors.

The first few years, only one outdoor production in the summer was presented.  After a while, some adults wanted a chance to present plays outside of the usual youth oriented shows, so an indoor winter production was added.
