Trustus is our favorite theater! We just saw "Marcus or The Secret of Sweet" there. It was an excellent play. We really enjoy the comfy chairs, the free popcorn and being able to purchase beer and wine! Can't wait to go back!

We saw a showing of the Great American Trailer Park Christmas and had a great time. The cast and story were endearing and the audience really got into the Christmas spirit. It helps that they offer free popcorn and a pretty good selection of alcohol for a fair price. Can't wait to see a production on their smaller more intimate... More

Choreography was flawlessly executed. Very talented cast. Musicians were really into it. I want to see it again this Thursday (Jly 28). I'd like a female... More

We have been to Trustus several times. Most recently, we saw American Idiot. Always have a great time seeing old friends. Every seat in the place is great. Free popcorn. Cheap drinks. Makes for a fantastic night.

We took the entire family to see the Green Day American Idiot show and I was very impressed. Even though I think the message speaks to a younger generation, I was impressed by the actors and music. The venue is very comfortable and had a bar for pre-show drinks.

It’s always fun to introduce out-of-towners to the Trustus experience. Most of these newbies are genuinely surprised that a city the size Columbia has a theatre of this kind and quality. We recently took relatives from Charlotte to see “The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical.” We had a great time and went away very happy. In other words, we... More

This theatre boasts everything from drag shows to musicals. Small house makes it possible to have a great view of the stage, no matter where you sit. Their version of "A Christmas Carol" is a MUST!

Trustus Theater always puts on wonderful productions! Everything from Godspell to the Vista Queen - one of our personal favorites. Most productions are not for children. Comfortable chairs, free popcorn and a beer and wine cash bar. What else can you ask for?

Small local theatre. Shows are performed well. Employees are very friendly. Seats are comfortable and well spaced. Free popcorn is provided. There is a bar with a select drink menu (wines, beer, champagne, soda) and candy. Prices at the bar are reasonable. Sodas were $1, tall beer $5, some bottles of wine around $20. Tickets were $20 each. Restroom was... More
