About The Theater
Swinging Sammy Kaye and his Orchestra were the first touring performers to appear on stage. The late great Duke Ellington made his final appearance here. For over 50 years our 969 seat theater has charmed guests with the best professional and local talent available.

Schools, Promoters, Corporations and Organizations are just some of the many satisfied clients that have hosted their event in the Auditorium. The Sturgis Council of Arts hosts the annual "Great Performance" series with nationally known groups and soloists.

For your added convenience, cocktails and dining are available in the Civic Center prior to most events. Concessions are available prior to and during intermission for all shows. Please Contact Us for more information about hosting your event.
