The Bug Theatre is home to live theatrical performances, forums, and classes, and regularly brings national and international artwork to our audience in the form of film festivals and traveling artists. We are a multifunctional venue that provides a gathering place for community meetings, workshops, benefits, and other artistic events. Our calendar is regularly booked with comedy, music, and burlesque. We can be rented for private parties. A traveling cat circus visits us every couple of years. We've even hosted weddings and funerals. Be sure to check out our calendar for all of our upcoming events, and learn more about renting The Bug Theatre for your own event.
