About Us

Henderson Civic Theatre is a non-profit organization dedicated to engaging and educating the general public through the presentation, performance, and promotion of dramatic arts in all forms. Founded to encourage dramatic arts and education within the community, HCT has since impacted the greater East Texas area.

Incorporated in 1986, Henderson Civic Theatre purchased the historic 1885 Opera House in 1988. Renovations have been ongoing to bring the quaint theatre to its current state-of-the-art status. The most recent renovations completed include a new projector and screen, an elegant expanded lobby, a new rehearsal and rental space, and new restrooms. 

HCT’s production season begins in the fall each year and comprises of five productions, as well as a special production performed during Henderson’s annual Syrup Festival. The theatre sponsors other unique events throughout the year and is committed to furthering its outreach endeavors through new programs, partnerships, and community involvement.


Treasure Island

Directed by Travis Driver

Based on the masterful adventure novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island  is a stunning yarn of piracy on the tropical seas. It begins at an inn  on the coast of England in 1775 and quickly becomes an unforgettable  tale of treachery and mayhem, featuring a host of legendary  swashbucklers. At the center of it all are Jim Hawkins, a 14-year-old  boy who longs for adventure, and the infamous Long John Silver, perhaps  the most famous hero-villain of all time. A tale sure to win the heart  of every soul who has ever longed for romance, treasure, and adventure. An adventure fit for the whole family.
