The historic 1923 Cumming Schoolhouse, is now Tam's School Street Playhouse.

In the spring of 2018, the Mayor and City Council made the decision to lease the theater to Brian and Kelly Tam, owners of Tam's Backstage Restaurant, who have leased the restaurant space within the building from the City for more than 10 years. Beginning in January the Tams will take over operations of the theater. 

The most obvious change that patrons will  notice is the venue's name. No longer under operation of the City of Cumming, the theater will now be called Tam's School Street Playhouse. The facility's website has also changed to schoolstreetplayhouse.com. All 2019 shows will be posted on this website and patrons will still be able to order tickets online. 

On the tentative 2019 line-up are well-known shows such as "Bonnie & Clyde," "South Pacific," "Mama Mia," and "A Christmas Carol." Also  for this year are several shows focusing on Southern culture, including "A Southern Exposure," "Derby Girls: The Musical," and "Single Wide: The Musical." Among the concert lineup for 2019 are Banks & Shane, The Return: A Beatles Tribute, and "Remember Broadway," a Broadway-themed variety show. Local favorites including "Georgia Senior Follies," "Christmas Classics," The Cumming Playhouse Singers, North Georgia Barbershop Singers, and Sounds of Sawnee Concert Band are all also slated to return in 2019. 

Stay up-to-date on everything going at Tam's School Street Playhouse at schoolstreetplayhouse.com. Specific performance dates and times will be posted on the website throughout the year.
