Welcome to "Ole Olsen" Memorial Theater

Our shows are performed in the intimate atmosphere of the historic Peru C&O Depot. It's this quaint environment that makes our theater unique. 

Comfortably seating only 44, there's not a bad seat in the house! And... with the creative sets and the best actors around, you will NOT be disappointed!

"I’ve found a lot of beautiful friends here. Not only have I been able to hone my thespian skills, but became part of a family of wonderful people whom I love very much. If you have never acted in a play before, I highly encourage you to audition for an upcoming show and give it a try. You may very well be surprised at what you can do, and it may change your life!"
