Theatre

  • Strauss Theatre Center is one of Louisiana’s leading not-for-profit theatres. Plays, musicals, dinner theatres and other artistic endeavors are produced by a talented staff, hundreds of volunteers and a large, supportive membership. The Strauss community continues to be a strong artistic force in Northeast Louisiana serving thousands of adults and youth.

  • Strauss Youth Academy for the Arts offers the very first comprehensive educational programming in the arts for youth in Northeast Louisiana.

  • The Princess Theatre opened her doors in 1912 as a vaudeville house bringing a new world of entertainment to the citizens of northeast Louisiana. She entertained generations of Franklin Parish residents until 1988, when her owners decided the Princess could no longer compete with the newly popular multiplexes. The Princess lay dormant and shuttered until 1992, when Rowena Ramage, the owner of the building that housed the Princess Theatre, generously gifted it to the citizens of Winnsboro. The Princess re-opened in 1994, and since then thousands have walked through the same doors as their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, experiencing the magic of the Princess for themselves. If you haven't visited this turn-of-the century, live­-performance venue, now is a great time to re-acquaint yourself with the Princess Theatre.

  • The Rose Theater was built in 1927. As a movie theater, the Rose Theater closed in the 1970’s. The theater was reopened in 1985 as a community theater and today it is home to the Cotton Country Players.
