About
The Mines Theatre is dedicated to providing a
family-friendly environment that offers a variety of avenues for artistic expression and appreciation.

The Mines Theatre works with local individuals to
provide unique experiences in the performing arts and special events for our community.

The Mines Theatre strives to give back to the community in which we serve.

The theatre was formed on September 4, 2014, when members of the community came together under the guidance of the SC3, a local non-profit 501c3 organization in Sulphur, LA, to enact their vision as The Mines, Sulphur Community Theatre.

 “A Christmas Carol” was the first offering from the theatre, and was performed at WW Lewis Auditorium the weekend following Thanksgiving 2014.  A Christmas stageplay is a tradition the theatre continues to embrace, in addition to an annual Christmas dance production.

The theatre transitioned into a stand-alone 501c3 non-profit in January 2017. 
The Mines has a Board, led by an Executive Director, who oversees the theatre.

The theatre offers various means for entertainment through the performing arts:  stage plays; youth performances; dinner theatre; musical venues; dance productions; and special events.

The Mines is located in the historic Fox Theatre building located at 121 E Napleon St in Sulphur, LA.  Built following WWII, in a naval Quonset hut, the movie theatre operated until the mid-1960’s.  In 1990, the building became home to the Kossa Dancers, and was renovated to become one of the only community performing arts theatres in our area to feature a theatre-in-the-round.  The theatre houses a 40’ stage made of pecan from the building’s original balcony.  The original foyer was also maintained, complete with terrazzo flooring that extends to the street.   

Giving back to the community is very important to the theatre and a scholarship has been awarded to an individual pursuing a continuing education in the performing arts at Sulphur High School since the 2014/2015 school year.  This year the theatre
will expand the scholarship application region to incorporate Westlake High School and Vinton High School.
 
The 2017 agenda will include several shows as a joint venture to support our scholarships and other local non-profit organizations.

It is through the generosity of our members and sponsors in the community that we are able to provide quality entertainment in the performing arts and give back to the community in which we serve. 

Thank You!
