The theatre, which was built in 1792, has a new glass atrium, a refurbished stage and seating area, a new bar, workshop, rehearsal studio and toilets.It came close to permanently closing in 2011, before The Holywood Trust stepped in with a £1 million grant.
Dumfries and Galloway Council gave £455,000 and other fundraisers were then able to raise the remaining £550,000 to carry out the works.
The theatre will officially open on Wednesday 2nd December with "Beauty and the Beast" pantomime.
