We have been to numerous shows and concerts at the Missouri theater. It has a limited stage, and that makes it a smallish environment. The stage has no wings, and no trap doors, so productions are limited in elaborate shows. However, for musical performances, the smallish environment is spot on. I had the pleasure of hearing a Stradivarius violin played... More

Happened to be in town for the first night of the season, and it was wonderful. Wasn't sure how my pre-teens would enjoy the play, but they loved it. The theater is beautiful. It reminds me of the Fox in St. Louis. The only issues I had were that everything such as bathrooms and drinks are all on the second... More

I hadn't been to the Missouri Theater since I was in high school, over 35 years ago. I surprised her with tickets to an Eagles trubute band. Still a marvellous building. Great architecture

I used to go as a child to see my father perform in the St. Joseph Symphony. Today you can see classical music and other performances in this historic downtown theater.

This is one of my favorite venues in St. Joseph. It has been beautifully restored and maintained throughout the years. We enjoy concerts and theatrical presentations here.

The Missouri Theater is a beautiful icon of our city. It was built in an elegant day and continues to house wonderful performances. Unfortunately the restrooms are upstairs, the seats are narrow, and the stairs are steep. It is not a good location for travelers with physical limitations. Despite this it will always hold a special place in our city.

As a teenager I saw movies here almost every weekend. I was impressed with the architecture then, but now as a senior citizen I am absolutely awed that St Joseph has such a treasure. The theater is used now for live performances and the visiting cast are also awed by the architecture. I attended a performance, The Phantom of the... More

I attended the Christmas presentation and Mary Poppins. It is an enjoyable experience to sit in this historical theatre and watch these talented people entertain and present an enjoyable experience. Be sure to check the theatre schedule and buy a ticket to escape to a superb performance!
