The Spanish Trail Playhouse originally began in 1962. In 1964, the Playhouse was recognized by The Florida Arts Council as a charter member. During their seven year run, the Playhouse presented successful productions such as Carousel, Oklahoma, Show Boat, and many more large-scale plays and musicals popular during that era. The Spanish Trail Playhouse closed the curtains for the last time in 1968 after the final performance of The Sound of Music.

In 2006, under the direction of Kevin Russell, a local theatre graduate, efforts began to bring back what was once a vital part of the community. In 2008, the Spanish Trail Playhouse opened its first production in over 38 years, Steel Magnolias, and moved into its current home, the historic Chipley High School Auditorium. Since its reestablishment in 2007, the Spanish Trail Playhouse completed three very successful seasons, eight main stage productions, and six fundraiser productions. The Spanish Trail Playhouse is a non-profit community theatre and is one of the only remaining all-volunteer community theatres in the State of Florida.

We invite you to join us as we continue our mission to promote and increase the public knowledge and appreciation of the arts in Washington County through live theatre.
