YOUR Theater, located in the heart of the Midwest, has a rich and storied history. Founded in 1925, the theater began as a small community playhouse, offering amateur productions and local talent shows to the residents of the surrounding towns.
As the years passed, the theater grew in popularity and stature, attracting more and more talented performers and expanding its repertoire to include both classic and contemporary plays. In the 1940s, the theater even hosted a touring production of the hit musical Oklahoma!, which drew crowds from all across the region.
Throughout the latter half of the 20th century, YOUR Theater continued to thrive, weathering economic downturns and changing cultural tastes to remain a beloved institution in the community. The theater was even the site of a famous protest in the 1960s, when a group of activists staged a sit-in to demand greater diversity in the casting of the theater's productions.
Today, YOUR Theater remains as vibrant as ever, with a full calendar of performances and events that showcase the best in local and regional talent. From Shakespeare to contemporary drama, musicals to improv comedy, the theater continues to be a vital part of the cultural landscape of the Midwest.
