About the Lake Country Playhouse & Historic Select Theater
Mr. and Mrs. R. T. Hooks opened the Theater as a movie house in 1920, and the building retains much of its historical style and ambiance today. In 1978, a group of actors determined to bring live theater to the Lake Country area forming the Lake Country Playhouse. They purchased the Theater in 1993, ensuring that Mineola would continue to have a movie theater and a venue for live theatrical and musical productions.
The Playhouse produces four live plays each year—one in each season—and shows first-run movies each weekend. Patrons especially love the summer musicals and popular Christmas shows. The Theater is also home to the Lake Country Symphonic Band (formally the Wood County Orchestra), which presents four scheduled performances during the year.
Ghosts of the Historic Select Theater
The Select is now becoming well-known for it’s “non-live” performances as well! Several investigations in the last few years have confirmed at least four regular spirits within the Select walls. From former employees wondering what YOU are doing backstage to an actress who only did one show before passing and never getting an encore, and a mischievous spirit named Abby, who loves to startle folks and will play tricks on you.
The Select has become one of the more active sites in East Texas. Numerous transient spirits also seem to show up drawn to the emotional energy that always seems to fill an active theater.
