Topeka Civic Theatre showcases some amazing talent from the area. The caliper of productions is amazing particularly given that this is a community theater. The dinners are catered by a local business and the food is always great...and make sure you leave room for dessert!

Dinner theater with local talent. We enjoy the improv groups as well. The food is always good. Great time for couples. New Year's Eve shows are memorable.

All actors are volunteers and the shows are wonderful! Reasonable prices for a show, dinner and nice evening with friends. Website available to check on mainstage as well as children's and other performances during the year.

My wife and I went to watch them perform Young Frankenstein. This is a dinner Theatre. The show itself was awesome. Talented performers, great direction. The food was just okay with the exception of dessert during intermission where I proceeded to have a most decadent chocolate cake. I highly recommend seeing any of their shows. Have if you have the... More

TCT is always a great place to go. We have seen comedy, drama, musicals and improv. Check their website. Mary Poppins is there now. There are dinner options and no meal options. Always enjoy the New Year's Eve show.

I have attended the Topeka Civic Theatre many times and the acting, costumes, sets, lighting, and music are always well done. When you include the wide variety of shows, good food, and nice selection of wines and drinks, it is always an evening to be remembered with good friends and family. I have been blessed by being able to take... More

If your idea of community theatre is a crowded room, a tiny stage, and mediocre talent, you are in for a big surprise. In terms of facilities, talent and production values this community theatre rivlals the best regional professional theatres. There are two stages, the main stage offering typical community theatre plays and musicals, and a second stage where more... More

This is one of the nicest venues in town and some fun shows. Great seating, small, all seats are good. Popcorn though is $4.00 for a basket which I think is sort of pricey. Check it out - its fun!
