Group Information

Your group is welcome at Topeka Civic Theatre & Academy!

As the longest, continuously operating dinner theatre in the country, we have been hosting groups since 1936. Today, we offer eight (8) Mainstage shows in our beautiful Sheffel Theatre, where patrons enjoy an elegant meal prior to the performance. Many of our shows sell out, so we encourage group leaders to make early reservations.

With every group of 20, we offer:

Topeka Civic Theatre & Academy is known for our fabulous food and most importantly, our amazing desserts! When guests arrive, there is a menu on their table offering a full bar and specialty drinks as well as desserts. All drinks and desserts ordered from the menu, as well as tax and gratuity on these items, are a separate charge, and may either be charged to the group leader or to each individual at the performance.

For your convenience, pre-paid dessert arrangements are available to make your visit to TCTA as easy and worry free as possible. Pre-paid dessert arrangements are made and paid for prior to your visit.
