Dodge City's First and Only Dinner Theater

Dodge City’s Depot Theater has been entertaining locals and visitors alike since it was first founded in 1984. Today, it is located in the historic Santa Fe Depot and the Harvey Hotel, which was originally built in 1898 by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway.

The mission of the Depot Theater is to provide and fill space for theatre, performance arts, and education to enhance the quality of life for our diverse community. Buy a ticket for a meal and a show, volunteer to work behind the curtain, or audition to take the stage! We’ve got so many opportunities for participation—now we just need you. Join us!

MisCast Cabaret 2022

Actors all have those roles they love, but will never have the chance to perform onstage – whether because they are of a different gender, age, race, or have different physical characteristics. It doesn't mean they haven't dreamed of what it would be like to get a crack at it – just once! Well, here's your chance to hear them present the dream roles they will never perform in a staged production! MisCast Cabaret is a three-performance event featuring Depot Theater talent performing songs from roles, in which, they would never be cast. Changing the roles can alter the dynamic or meaning of a song, which creates a new perspective for the audience. The results are sometimes thought-provoking and often hilarious.

Almost, Maine

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that's so far north, it's almost not in the United States.

Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend - almost - in this delightful midwinter night's dream.

Chicago

"Chicago" is set in 1920s Chicago and based on real-life murders and trials. It follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer, Velma Kelly. When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy superstar, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight - though instead of onstage, they’re mugging for the flashbulb of the newspaper reporters. With catchy music and timeless lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and a funny, intelligent, and utterly engaging book by Kander and Bob Fosse, "Chicago" is a musical spectacular that is as addictive as gossip rags and as unforgettable as any trial of the century.
