“Gem”

Mabel Tainter Memorial Theater
Ranked #2 of 14 things to do in Menomonie
Attraction details
Reviewed May 18, 2013

I have worked behind the scenes at this historic theatre and never really knew much about it until I did. I have worked 4 performances there and being able to go behind the scenes is a wonderful experience. The backstage is very small but we made it work. One performance had over 40 participants and another had 30 with LOTS of props. The timing for that one had to be perfect but it all worked out just fine. Ask someone to tell you about the 'ghosts' in the building. At the last play I worked at, the ghost was definetely there, costumes kept disappearing and being moved. It's all in what you want to believe. Awesome theatre to watch wonderfully produced plays.

Surprising performance of "Our Town" highlights the three day conference for colleagues and me. This architectural gem hosts cultural venue for Art Deco fashion, Art Deco Building designs by students and paper mach animals creating a pathway to travel before sitting down for a wonderful Thornton Wilder play.

Saw Boiled in Lead concert. Enjoyed the beautiful historic theater, good acoustics and a nice adult beverage on the break. Hubby and I look forward to visiting again!

This is the best theater in the area to catch a show. We can't wait to visit again. There is not a single bad seat in the house.
