Created in 1977, the Farmville Community Arts Council sponsors two musicals a year, as well as dinner and dessert theatre performances. The Arts Council also takes an active role in bringing a variety of cultural arts programs to the schools. Students in the K-12 school system have the opportunity to see and enjoy musical and dance performances, puppet shows, poetry readings and storytelling programs. The Arts Council is located in the historic Paramount Theatre, which dates back to the 1920’s. Each month, the work of an artist is displayed in the lobby of the Theatre on Main Street.
