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!

Steel Magnolias

Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but mostly humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength - and love - which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

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.

A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas

This theatrical and spirited version of A Christmas Carol puts the phantasmagoric qualities of Charles Dickens' classic tale centerstage. A swirling, dancing ensemble of ghosts that weave through this uplifting holiday story of redemption, magic and hope.

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

Rumors

At a large, tastefully-appointed Sneden's Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Four couples are about to experience a severe attack of Farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room, and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken, and wife, Chris, must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
