Old Gem Theater is located in New Richmond Wisconsin, just under northeast of the Twin Cities. Gianna's (at-the-time) 5-year-old guarantees "That’s wasn’t so far, Mom!” Each season, the theater produces several kid-friendly plays and musicals -- both for the public and as school field trips. The theater experience will be enhanced by the building's vintage Art Deco decor, including original light sconces and murals.

History of Old Gem Theater

The building originally opened as a vaudeville house called The Gem in 1916. Over the years, it has shown silent films and movies. John F. Kennedy even made a campaign stop at this theater. In 2002, under new ownership, it became the Old Gem Theater as a venue for guest artists, performing arts education, and youth theater.

We love the fact that most of their plays are based on classic children's books. This is a great way to make reading time fun with an extra special outing after finishing the book.
