Hale Centre Theatre is located at 50 West Page Avenue in Gilbert, Arizona. The facility opened during 1947 making it the longest continually running theatre in America that is privately operated and owned. There has been a performance held at the facility every week since the opening.
The Theatre is dedicated to providing visitors with the best theatrical experience they can have in an atmosphere as close to the friendliness and intimately as their own homes. The shows are chosen to reflect this while giving affordable and fun entertainment venues. There are three other locations of the Hale Centre Theatre that all strive to meet this same goal.
The Theatre originated in Glendale, California when Nathan and Ruth Hale moved to the area during 1943. The two wanted to be actors but realized they would have to open a theatre themselves if they were going to achieve the goal. The two began the Hale Centre Theatre when they rented a building during 1947. The first performance was seen by six people in the audience of the theatre that sat 110. The facility has grown and now people enjoy performances at all of the locations regularly and the audience is much larger.
