Long Description:
The Pinnacle Playhouse traces its roots to 1951, when a local group of amateur drama enthusiasts met for readings at the nearby Corby Public Library (since demolished). They decided to produce a play, such as "The Voice of the People", a play by Robertson Davies. The play was well-received. From that point the Theatre was born. In the next 15 or so years, the troupe struggled, both financially and with suitable locations.

Finally, in 1969 the City of Belleville donated the D.L. Storey Building on Pinnacle Street, which was formerly a Salvation Army Citadel. The theatre currently seats 154.

Since then, the guild has gone on to produce many plays, musicals and theatre-related workshops.
