Foothills Community Theatre is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting performing arts and theater arts education in McDowell County and the Foothills of North Carolina. We have been in existence for almost 45 years. Once a part of the McDowell Arts Council Association, we have been an independent entity for the past 18 years.
Community theatre enriches the lives of those who take an active part in it, as well as those in the community who benefit from live theatre productions. On either side of the lights, those involved represent a diversity of age, culture, life experience, and a strong appreciation of the importance of the arts.
