While we are facing challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are hopeful we will be able to present these shows to our community, and remain committed to creating theatrical opportunities in our region. Since the situation is evolving and we prioritize volunteer and patron safety, we recognize that changes in our season and seating capacity may need to occur. Consequently, we have decided not to sell season tickets this year. We are hopeful that you might consider making a monetary donation to MTG instead. The pandemic has already deeply affected our income, and we ask that you consider supporting us as you are able. Ticket sale information is forthcoming, as CDC guidelines continue to be updated. Thank you for your support!
In December 1958, a group of citizens, concerned with the preservation of the Mabel Tainter Theater, came together and created the Menomonie Theater Guild. To date, the Guild is the oldest existing community theater organization in Western Wisconsin, fostering culture within our region.
The Menomonie Theater Guild remains dedicated to bringing together actors, directors, musicians, dancers, costumers, makeup artists, lighting and sound designers, set builders, properties managers, stage managers, and a score of other creative minds to create theatrical magic in our community.
The Guild has offered a rich variety of main stage productions; dramas, comedies, musicals and straight plays which have been lighting up the beautiful Mabel Tainter stage for over 60 years!
The Menomonie Theater Guild is fortunate to maintain its own home just a few blocks from the Mabel Tainter Theater. Auditions, rehearsals, board meetings, set-building, and summer camp productions all occur in our studio. A vast collection of props and costumes are housed in the second floor with a full set building workshop in the basement. In addition to our black box theater performance space, there is a dance studio, sewing room, music rehearsal room, and offices.
Get Involved with the Menomonie Theater Guild! We have lots of opportunities for volunteers! Don’t want to be on stage? That’s okay! We always need help behind the scenes with costumes, set building and painting, stage managing, ushering, and more!
