Canteen Construction

at the Fox

After 90 years of performances, conferences, lectures and musical entertainment, the historic Fox Theatre must move into the 21st century. The North Platte Community Playhouse Board is committed to raising $750,000 to make the Fox Theatre “the place” in our community to experience drama, music and intellectual fulfillment.  Currently, we are focused on our meeting room, The Canteen Room, to be used by our community for events, in addition to improvements to the exterior of our historic building.  We are always grateful to the community for their support of the Arts in North Platte!

Lights, Camera, Action! 

North Platte is home to the North Platte Community Playhouse and the historic 850-seat Fox Theatre. These facilities have a long tradition of hosting live theatre productions, movies, guest speakers, community concerts, talented musicians and children’s performances. The theatre was constructed in 1929 and since that time has served the residents of west-central Nebraska in a profound and meaningful way.
