THE TOYMAKER was on stage this past Saturday to Muncie Civic Theater. The format was very unusual and very enjoyable. I always enjoy an evening at Muncie Civic.

Muncie Civic provides a tremendous atmosphere for our local actors/singers/directors as well as pulling some students from Ball State for year round productions. The Historic Building has been restored in many areas, and is beautifully maintained with great oak features. More is needed to be done, like seats need to be replaced (but that takes $$$). We recently saw My... More

We saw the musical Cabaret, and enjoyed the music, the singing, the acting, the sets, costumes very much. The old theater has a great ambience.

Muncie Civic Theatre is a downtown landmark. It isn't a fancy venue. You can expect a small theatre with balcony, showing signs of its age, but with productions of excellent quality. Last night we went to see Cabaret. The cast included experienced Civic performers, as well as young talent from the theater department at Ball State University. This is typical... More

The Muncie Civic Theatre is a great place to experience local talent and spend an evening enlightening ones mind whilst supporting local actors, their dreams and the arts. Is it Broadway? Is it Professional? Even Local "for-profit"? No. But, it IS an outlet for local people to explore the arts... they try hard and they make up for lack of... More

Muncie Civic Theater provides a great value with fine entertainment featuring local actors/singers/directors year round in a historic building. Restoration has been done in several areas in the building (and more is needed) but the last few years have shown an upsurge in the quality of the shows, the appearance of the building, and the excitement in the community.

Pulling a local talent base and students from area universities like Ball State, the shows are pretty good. They are not all broadway quality, but I have seen some stellar performances. If you're debating about attending a show - go ahead and give it a try. For the price, you'll enjoy the experience.

I have been to many shows at Civic Theater and I have enjoyed every one of the shows. The arts in Muncie, IN are great and I would take a date, family, or friends. A great way to show your support in the community as well as see a great show.
