“Atmosphere and Talent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Local talent outshines professionals. Warm, friendly staff and excellent performances. Location is easy to find. The musicals are our favorite. We would rather see performances here than drive into Kansas City.

“Diamond in the Rough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

The Missouri Theater boasts some of the most beautiful architecture you'll find in a theater. You'll want to spend some time gazing at the beauty before your show begins! I've seen few theaters like it in the USA. Parking is close and prices to get in to shows are always reasonable.

“Small venue, very beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We went to a concert at the Missouri Theater. It is an old theater that has been renovated with the intent of keeping the old style and beautiful architecture. They did a great job. I believe the seating is a maximum of about 1200. We had seats in the back on the main floor. We had no problem seeing or hearing the concert. We were also pleasantly surprised to see that they actually left good leg room. A native of St. Joseph sat by me and told me about the fire and renovation, as well as the destruction of a similar theater across the street to make a parking lot. If you have the opportunity to attend an event at this theater, take it! You cannot choose a bad seat and it is beautiful.

“The experience had us laughing all night long.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

It is a small dinner theatre and the actors involve audience members throughout the play. Parking is close and easy.

“Excellent acoustics..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

This theater is an awesomely restored example of a turn of the century room, original egyptian style decor inside..

There was a fire in one of the attached shops and the theater was recently cleaned and restored back to it's original design..

The acoustics in this room are magnificent.. Not a bad seat..
