What is there to do?

Kids, get ready for a very entertaining family day out in Abilene, because we're off to the Great Plains Theatre!

Opened in 1995, the Great Plains Theatre is a non-profit organization that is home to a range of shows, performances and entertainment that is sure to bring joy to all who visit!

Live performances are such a fun way to spend time as a family, and kids can be experience art, theatre and music in ways they may never have before. 

Every year, the Great Plains Theatre has a number of different shows and performances, so you can keep going back to your favorite - or keep seeing something new!

You might see the swashbuckling pirates one week, treading the floorboards in a rambunctious physical musical comedy, or it might be an award winning play with rich, fascinating characters that draw you in.

If children in the family are inspired by what they see, check out the workshops and acting classes that the theatre offer - there are so many benefits from children performing. They can gain confidence, they can just spend time doing what they love, they can make new friends - and great for all ages!

Don't miss checking out the latest films at the Great Plains Theatre cinema - there is nothing quite like continuing your artistic and creative journey onto the big screen! When they aren't doing mainstage productions, it's all the first-run movies that will be ready to keep you entertained! Just check out their website for the schedule

An Abilene favorite, the Great Plains Theatre is ready and waiting to inspire, excite and most important - entertain!
