About Us

The Legacy Theater proudly celebrated its fifth year in Carthage, IL, in 2021 offering quality live entertainment and educational programming for the tri-state area. How The Legacy Theater began is an interesting saga.

The Legacy Theater Foundation Inc. was formed in 2016 and a rebranding process began. The foundation made additional improvements, creating a more valued asset for the region. The Legacy Theater’s mission is to bring a varied schedule of outstanding live entertainment to the area.

The theater now seats 525 including the balcony, which seats 80, plus offering space for serving food a and beverages for social gatherings. Back stage facilities include men’s and women’s dressing room, a “green room,” plus a back stage area with double doors opening to an elevated loading dock for ease of moving equipment in and out of the theater.

The Legacy Theater’s mission is to Inspire, Enrich, Educate and Entertain.
