About Us

The Legacy Theater (aka Thomas A. Schmidt Auditorium) was completely renovated in 2009 and 2010 at a cost of over $3.3 million. It is available for community and professional performances of many types (projector/screen/audio equipment is modern and available, as is a large stage and production area). Facility includes men's and women's dressing rooms, ''green room'' and back stage area with double doors opening to elevated entrance for ease with loading and unloading equipment.

In 2010 our community rallied around ''together we build'' and look at all the good that has come from it. The East end of Carthage ''our front door'' has gone from looking like a tire dump to being a showcase for our community. The CVS campus is beautiful, a new hospital, new retail buildings and the jewel of our community ''The Legacy Theater'' is at the forefront.

The Legacy Theater is a 525 seat performance venue for the arts, learning, and entertainment in Carthage, Illinois. Their mission is to enrich, educate, inspire, and entertain.
