Quarantine Comeback Campaign

At Ennis Public Theatre, we are looking past these unpredictable times and hope that we can return to our fun-filled fundraisers in the coming year. Until then, contributions of all amounts, large and small, will assist us in getting things back to normal.

Your tax-deductible donations allow us to continue producing the diverse entertainment experiences that have helped us thrive for more than 16 years.

Theatre is a huge undertaking…and even though we are grateful to our volunteers and patrons, there are bills and expenses that simply aren’t covered by the cost of a ticket. In addition to the costumes, props and sets that we all enjoy seeing onstage, EPT also must pay for scripts and royalties, posters, advertising, playbills and publicity for each production. Concessions have to be purchased, rent and utilities must be paid, box office supplies and software, and web support and maintenance are the ongoing expenses that may not be glamorous but are essential to the life of our theater.

Art and entertainment can transport us and lift our spirits. Thanks in advance for your generosity. Please know that you are appreciated, and that you will receive an acknowledgement of your donation.

You can make a difference and be a part of the team that produces amazing theater right in the heart of Downtown Ennis.

Covid Protocol

Ennis Public Theatre appreciates all of our patrons and artists and their patience as we navigate through the ever-changing recommendations for social distancing and quarantine-related delays. We look forward to soon returning to performing for live audiences and to a sense of normalcy in our artistic endeavors.

With that mind, we are pleased to announce that we WILL be mounting our holiday production, A Christmas Carol

Tickets for this family-friendly holiday show will go on sale on November 1, but EPT will be taking reservations via phone rather than online as we transition back to live audiences. This limited seating capacity will ensure the safety of our audience members, cast, crew and staff, and we appreciate your patience as we sort through the logistics of this process.

Our hope is that 2021 will bring a regular schedule of shows back to EPT, so watch our site for updates and the announcement of our 2021 season!

Covid Protocol for Returning to the Theatre

Because COVID is an ever-changing issue and proper health and safety protocols are frequently updated, we reserve the right to change these procedures at any time in accordance with state, city and/or CDC recommended guidelines.

• All audience members and staff will be required to wear a mask.

• When you arrive, we will take your temperature.

• Each individual will be required to sign a COVID-19 waiver. You will not be permitted to watch the show without signing one.

• There will be no concessions served.

• There will be no intermission. We have chosen a shorter show (running less than an hour) to accomplish this for our Christmas production.

• We will be following state required spacing between seats/rows in the auditorium.

• The facility will be thoroughly sanitized following CDC guidelines.


The Ennis Public Theatre is the jewel in the crown of our Downtown.  It has been through much passion, work, and dedication by so many that this theatre is thriving and ever evolving.

Angie Juenemann, Board President and Ennis Mayor

I loved working at Ennis — the people were kind, the show was great — but most importantly for an actor, the audiences were FANTASTIC.

An actor’s dream! This little theater is a hidden gem…not a bad drive from Dallas, cool performance space and appreciative audiences. When can I come play again?!

Most fun I’ve had in years. Oh my gosh, I love this little theatre.
