Columbia Area Theaters

Maplewood Barn Theater: This local theater lives up to the motto “the show must go on”. After a devestating fire in April of 2010, continued with their season and is currently working to raise funds to rebuild.
Columbia Entertainment Company: This group bills themselves as “your community theater” and draws upon local talent to stage several plays and musicals throughout the year.
Independent Actors Theater: Established in 2007, Independent Actors Theatre (IAT) is an actor-centered, fringe theatre company whose mission is to show audiences work they likely wouldn’t see elsewhere in Columbia, Missouri and to provide local actors with challenging, “edgy” performance opportunities. Nomadic by choice, IAT believes quality theatre can be created in non-traditional and site-specific theatre spaces. For more information about IAT, their production season, and ways to get involved, visit their website or email artistic director Emily Rollie (e.rollie@iatheatre.org).
