About Us

Live Theater for a Lively Town

Oxford, Mississippi is home to the University of Mississippi, William Faulkner’s house, the Double Decker Festival, and one phenomenal community theater.

For 22 years, Theatre Oxford has been run by passionate volunteers dedicated to making theater welcoming, accessible and enjoyable for everyone in Lafayette County, North Mississippi and beyond.

Behind the curtain and on stage, you’ll find accomplished professionals, dedicated hobbyists and brave newbies all working together to produce small-town performances that rival big-city (i.e., big-budget) quality.

Theatre Oxford is committed to developing new works as well as traditional themes—for children and adults. We believe in the emotional power of storytelling, in the healing power of tears and laughter, and in the special ability of the theater to bring diverse people together for enrichment and fun.

We look forward to seeing you soon—either in the audience, backstage or onstage. Come play!
