The Towle Opera House was built by Marcus M. Towle and opened its doors in 1903. Marcus M. Towle was a wealthy capitalist who became the first Mayor of Hammond. The Opera House was by far the most modern to date and the best equipped of any in the city. It was generally referred to as Hammond’s Leading Playhouse and often showcased the best attractions available in the region. In fact, they were on par with the first class theaters in Chicago.
The current Towle Theater, located in downtown Hammond at 5205 Hohman Avenue, opened in 2003, with its first full season in 2004. The Towle presents eight shows a year and you are encouraged to attend one of the great productions in its beautiful and historic facility.

Play Dates – Indiana Premiere
Adult Comedy by Sam Wolfson, co-writer of Jewtopia
Play Dates is a play all about love, falling in, falling out and everything in between. From the childhood innocence of your first everlasting crush, to the challenge of trying to keep the spark alive after five years of marriage, to the tortuous single years in between when you think you’ll never find anybody, Play Dates hilariously reminds us that love is never easy…and kindergarten is just the beginning.
