Title: Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts welcomes top recording artists, outstanding summer stock theatrical productions
Press Release: Immediate Release
What started more than 60 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 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 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 Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts 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 Wagon Wheel, 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.
Also, summer session shows and holiday season productions are favorites!
