“The Elizabeth Crump Theater”
The Board of Directors voted unanimously to name the Playhouse stage in honor of theater enthusiast Miss Elizabeth Crump. Her on and off-stage contributions to the Montgomery Little Theatre are legendary, and The Cloverdale Playhouse would not be possible without her guidance and generosity. 

INTO THE WOODS Opens February 13th, 2014

SOUTHERN VOICES at the Playhouse. 

The Montgomery Advertiser featured the story of Starting Here, Starting Now on the cover of the Go! section on opening night, June 21, 2012.

THE BOYS NEXT DOOR Standing Ovations and The Word Is Out

Michael Howley: “the second production in the Cloverdale Playhouse’s Inaugural Season — Tom Griffin’s touching comedy The Boys Next Door — is setting a high bar for local theatre.”

Midtown Montgomery Living: The Cloverdale Playhouse shows “inspiring audacity” in The Boys Next Door. ”Here’s hoping that Montgomery will flood to support the Cloverdale Playhouse performance of “Boys,” emboldening the community theater to continue to embark on such difficult, and engaging subject matter.”

Bravo to our volunteer cast and crew for an “awesome! nothing amateur about it” production. - Sandra Nickel

“Make it a point to come see a wonderful play that will leave you laughing, crying, laughing again, but will also leave you with a deeper appreciation of the humanity that surrounds us.” - actor/blogger Aaron Fonseca
