Bringing our diverse community together to learn about, experience, and celebrate the joys of live theatre.


Topeka Civic Theatre & Academy offers multiple choices for entertainment on three stages in Topeka. Our TCT Mainstage offers the opportunity to take in a dinner performance or enjoy a non-dinner show with drinks & desserts from the TCT Club. The Club offers a full bar with a wide selection of spirits and is well-known for delightful desserts. Also located in our building at 8th & Oakley is the Oldfather Theatre, a smaller more intimate space that offers a wide range of entertainment from children's shows, thought provoking studio plays, and creative senior programming. A short distance from TCTA, Helen Hocker Theater offers a wide range of programming in Gage Park. Helen Hocker Theater is managed by TCTA in partnership with Shawnee County. No matter your taste in entertainment, TCTA offers five-star entertainment for everyone!
