About Us

Henderson Civic Theatre is a non-profit organization dedicated to engaging and educating the general public through the presentation, performance, and promotion of dramatic arts in all forms. Founded to encourage dramatic arts and education within the community, HCT has since impacted the greater East Texas area.

Incorporated in 1986, Henderson Civic Theatre purchased the historic 1885 Opera House in 1988. Renovations have been ongoing to bring the quaint theatre to its current state-of-the-art status. The most recent renovations completed include a new projector and screen, an elegant expanded lobby, a new rehearsal and rental space, and new restrooms. 

HCT’s production season begins in the fall each year and comprises of five productions, as well as a special production performed during Henderson’s annual Syrup Festival. The theatre sponsors other unique events throughout the year and is committed to furthering its outreach endeavors through new programs, partnerships, and community involvement.
