- Title: Wagon Wheel Theatre welcomes top recording artists, outstanding summer stock theatrical productions
- Press Release: Immediate Release
What started more than 50 years ago in a tent is now one of the cornerstones of a multi-million dollar enterprise and one of the most popular entertainment venues in northern Indiana.
The Wagon Wheel Theatre was the dream of the late Major Herbert Petrie who valued top-notch entertainment and sought to bring quality performances to the Warsaw community. His successful venture grew from a circus-style tent to the famed theatre-in-the-round format it is today.
The theatre was once all about summer theatre productions such as “The King and I,” “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” and “Look Homeward Angel.” But it has today evolved into an intimate venue that welcomes many new productions each season, and sees some of the country’s top recording artists.
Welcoming some of the biggest names in entertainment and summer stock theatrical productions, The Ramada Wagon Wheel Theatre promises its visitors they will never be more than 10 rows from center stage. Such an intimate setting allows for spectacular photo opportunities in a venue unmatched for seeing fame up close and personal.
In the history of the Ramada Wagon Wheel Theatre, class acts such as Chubby Checker, Sawyer Brown, The Oak Ridge Boys, The Smothers Brothers and many more have graced the stage and entertained full houses.
American Idol favorite Josh Gracin and other recording stars like Billy Dean and Josh Turner have also made sold-out appearances. Also, holiday season productions of favorites like “The Sound of Music” make The Wagon Wheel Theatre a class act and a must-see in northern Indiana.
