The town theatre of Valkeakoski is a small, high quality local theatre. The theatre has operated in one form or another since 1909 when the theatre building was completed. This old, romantic house comprises of a 228-seat main stage and a separate 60-seat small stage. There is also a 100-seat cafe.

The theatre employs full time manager/director, secretary and a costumier. The actual lifeline of the theatre are the enthusiastic hobbyists who work as actors, light and sound technicians etc.

The theatre invests into the local know-how and organises training for the hobbyists.

Twice a year the people of the theatre gather together to check, clean and repair the theatre building and the equipment. 

The theatre has two to three opening nights per year plus off-productions and visiting shows. The Actors' Association organises two to four times a year Cafe Teatro evenings that can be anything from the field of the performing arts.
