History:

The Mabel Tainter Memorial Theater is a fully functional Victorian era theater with a year round performing arts season featuring nationally recognized artists.

Located on Main Street in historic downtown Menomonie, Wisconsin, the Mabel Tainter's performing arts season runs from October through May. A special holiday theatrical performance and a variety of summer programs are also offered. The Theater is also home to the Menomonie Theatre Guild, who present a season of three different shows.

The Mabel Tainter Memorial Theater is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, a charter member of the League of Historic American Theatres and a designated Wisconsin Historical Marker Site. The Mabel Tainter building includes a lavish 313-seat "crown jewel" Victorian theater and a historic reading room. It is a premier example of a restored vintage American theater.

The theater contains intricate hand-stenciling, hand carved white pine archways, rich walnut, mahogony, and oak woodwork, gleaming brass fixtures, leaded glass windows, and a rare working Steere and Turner tracker pipe organ with 1,597 pipes.
