Welcome to the Prairie Arts Center!

  The beauty of the building alone invites you in. There is history here. Once a Lutheran church, the NEWLY RENOVATED Prairie Arts Center now serves as the Community Theater in Madison, MN. For over 30 years, this building has hosted theatrical events, providing opportunities for involvement in and exposure to the performing arts for both children and adults. As you enter, the pictures covering the walls attest to this history, showing small one act plays, children’s theater, large musical productions and more. The renovated sanctuary now houses a stage and seating for up to 230 people. The setting is intimate, allowing the audience to fully enter in to the productions. We welcome you to experience the richness that community theater can offer at the Prairie Arts Center in Madison, MN. Come for a show or join us on the stage.


For more than twenty-five years there has been a Christmas show in Madison and this year we are happy to offer one again at the newly renovated Prairie Arts Center. The title of this year’s show is Merry Christmas Madison, with Love, and we are going for a Hallmark Christmas movie feeling where we celebrate our small community doing the little things that make living in and around Madison so special and bring us the spirit of peace, joy, and giving that literally lights us up at Christmas! In the recent past we have endured so much: sickness and loss, tornadoes and winds, fire and gas leaks. And we watched as our community pulled together to rise up stronger. It’s time to celebrate that community!  Tickets go on sale to the public November 27th.  Click HERE for tickets.
