The North Central Louisiana Arts Council (NCLAC) helped DCA obtain and restore the historic theatre, and has helped to operate the Dixie Center since we began in 1996. NCLAC has a full staff that works upstairs in the Dixie Theatre, creating and managing a wide range of events that foster the arts in our area. Click on their name to learn more about them!
The Ruston Community Theatre (RCT) players have been planning and performing local plays and musicals in Ruston since 1977. You can normally tell when they are getting ready for a production by the number of people (the youth productions are especially fun) running about the building, preparing sets, making costumes and rehearsing lines. They also rely entirely on volunteers to sell make RCT function. The Dixie no longer handles ticket sells for RCT but they have a new phone number to call just for tickets! Call 318-595-0872 Monday-Friday between 10:00am and 3:00pm and someone should answer to help you or leave a message. Ticket are also on sale one hour before each performance in the lobby.
