Visiting Roosevelt Hall

Prairie Wind Players proudly owns Historic Roosevelt Hall, the home of Prairie Wind Players since 1983. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984, 50 years after its construction in the winter of 1933-34.

Dinner theatre tickets (when offered) are only available for advance sale by phone or our website. All other tickets can be purchased electronically or at the door; we accept cash, personal check, and credit/debit cards.

Dinner theatre is not offered at every performance. When available, dinner theatre tickets may include a follow-up from the dinner theatre coordinator to indicate preferences for table mates, subject to availability.

All tickets are general admission (no option to select seats or seat assignment by number). Roosevelt Hall is handicap accessible via side entrance/ramp. Please inquire with the box office or lobby attendants for assistance.

Adult ticket prices are generally $20 for general admission and $35 for dinner theatre. K-12 student ticket prices are $15. Please note individual performance prices may vary. Please review each event for its specific ticket prices and options.


Roosevelt Hall has no on-site parking lot; however, there is ample street parking adjacent to the Hall and a dedicated drop-off spot at the front grand entrance.

Patron Services

Guests at all Prairie Wind Players sponsored events (primary season) can enjoy a modest selection of beer, wine, and concessions (pop, water, candy, popcorn) at each performance. Items are available for purchase before the event starts and also during intermission.

Group Discounts and Arrangements

We love hosting groups of 10 or more at Roosevelt Hall! Group discounts and arrangements are available for prepaid groups of 10 or more based on availability. Not all performances have a discount ticket rate, but our ticket office can provide information on special arrangements (seating preference, etc.) to ensure your group has priority.

Not sure exactly how many will be in your group order or need flexibility? We can work with you on details and offer flexible arrangements. Contact the ticket office for more information.
