"Al Ringling" did a fabulous job of explaining all about his theater. It is a "Can't Miss" attraction. The entire tour was very informative and included a concert on the historic organ, which rose out of the orchestra pit. The place is a work in progress as funding for complete restoration becomes available.

Beth and I saw the Carpenters back in 1975 while dating in high school. It was so exciting to see this tribute to their music. Each member of the band offered an exciting glimpse of the music we have celebrated together for so many years. The concert was romantic and fun. The theatre was historically fascinating!

This is one of the first "theater palaces", built in 1915. They have many performances at reasonable prices. The restoration is an ongoing process, but the theater is still beautiful as it is. The tour is extremely interesting and thorough. Don't miss this one!

Spectacular even without complete restoration, the "glimpses" of what will be restored when the project is complete are dazzling. Well worth the inexpensive ticket fee.

The Al Ringling Theater in Baraboo was one of the first grand old movie palaces, a gift from circus founder Al Ringling to the city of Baraboo. There are daily tours at 11 am that are well worth the reasonable admission price. You get to see the lavish interior, go backstage, and hear the impressive organ being played. Some of... More
