About Us

​Old Courthouse Theatre was founded in 1976 and originally performed in the historic Cabarrus County Courthouse in downtown Concord. We are the area's only all volunteer community theatre, and we are always in need of more help. 
Please contact us to let us know if you can volunteer.

Each season consists of 5 plays, that typically run over the course of 2 weekends. We are located in the heart of Concord's historic districts and downtown's restaurants and shops. We encourage our patrons to head downtown for a meal before a show or drinks after.
