Who We Are Fine Linen Drama is an all volunteer community theatre organization in Rolla, Missouri, with a vision to benefit the members of the organization, audiences, and the community by producing excellent, wholesome, uplifting shows. Fine Linen seeks to build families and relationships, and keeps this forefront in all decisions, from the choice of shows, to rehearsal schedules, to interactions with one another. Fine Linen believes that:
Truly great art is that which builds up, encourages, and inspires, and that entertainment is benefited by wholesome principles and values.
Live theatre provides an interactive, multi-disciplinary, multi-generational format in which to gain skills, confidence, friendships, and a greater appreciation for the arts.

What We Do Fine Linen typically produces a large play/musical in the spring each year, and then as time allows will supplement with a smaller show or youth production at another time during the year. Each show is carefully chosen to not only provide great entertainment, but also to provide morally conservative theatre of integrity. Ticket prices are kept as low as possible to encourage those of all ages to attend and appreciate the joys of live theater.
Our Name The name “Fine Linen” references the scripture in Revelation 19:8 in which fine linen symbolizes the garment of the church. It represents being clothed in Christ, and is referred to as the righteous acts of the saints. The members of Fine Linen Drama desire that every aspect of their lives, especially that which is presented to the community bring honor to the Lord.
Our History Fine Linen Drama was established in 2002 when a group of homeschooled children and their families adapted a script, rented a theatre, and produced a simple show. Through the years the group has grown to a community wide organization which produces high quality dramas and musicals to sold-out audiences. Anyone who shares Fine Linen's vision is encouraged to audition and/or volunteer.
