Great Plains Theatre

Welcome to Great Plains Theatre!

We are grateful to be presenting another exciting season of offerings and we hope you will take advantage of some, or all of the things GPT brings to Abilene, KS.

Live theatre has always been our priority. With a seven show season that begins in June and runs through December, GPT lives up to its title as “the only professional theatre between Kansas City and Denver”. With actors coming in from all over the country, GPT is committed to presenting quality musicals, comedies/dramas that will be enjoyed by many and live up to the standard that GPT has become known for – all at a reasonable price.

With the addition of our Cinema in 2010, we are able to offer first run movies with concessions for a low price and provide a service to our community that was not present before. We play movies nightly with the exception of during live performances.

Our unique building is available for rental as well. We hold weddings, showers, meetings and host the Bonebrake concert series – which brings top notch musicians to Abilene – in the Dieter Concert Hall. Our theatre is also available for viewings of movies, sports games, or school reward parties.

We provide advertising opportunities on our big screen, with ads running before live theatre productions and movies. Your business name could be seen by nearly 30,000 patrons in a year. For more information on advertising, or becoming a corporate sponsor for one of our shows, give us a call.

Our Education program is blossoming. It’s important to acknowledge the great impact that being a part of the Plain Great Players – our youth group – has had on so many young people. Not only learning skills on stage, but also socially, our youth get various opportunities to grow in a supportive atmosphere.

Volunteers are important to GPT. Whether it be in the concession stand, taking tickets, or handing out programs, volunteer help is always appreciated.
Financially we will always need your support. Money can be a struggle for us, but with your tax-deductible donations we are able to keep going. No amount is too large or small. If you are interested in making a donation or would like to help GPT financially please contact us.

For more information or to ask us a question, please don’t hesitate and give us a call or write us an email. We’re going to keep doing what we’re doing, all the while improving and modifying along the way and hope you will enjoy what we have to offer
