Project Overview

Stone's Throw hopes to raise matching funds to expand and vastly improve our backstage area. This will allow for a larger and safer area for our actors and backstage crews. Currently the area is very congested.  We have limited space for our costumes and props. By moving the areas now taken by props and costumes we can facilitate larger and more versatile sets. This project will not only enhance the experience for our actors but make for a better theatre experience for our patrons.

In addition, Stone's Throw will soon conduct their 2nd Annual Summer Kids Camp. This backstage expansion will help to facilitate the growing number of camp participants and offer additional learning opportunities for them.

Stone's Throw Dinner Theatre is constantly working to make the area's only dinner theatre something that the Carthage and surrounding communities can be proud of. But, we cannot do it without the help of you and others who share our vision.

About Stone's Throw Dinner Theatre

Theater History

In 1928, the Carthage Music Club, formed by Mrs. Harry Spradling, performied musical shows in schools, churches, and other locations.


In the late 1970s, as part of the Missouri Federation of Music Clubs, Carthage Music and Theatre Club was formed to broaden the scope of the Club's productions to include theatrical performances. Once again, productions were held in schools, churches, and other locations.

On September 11, 1984, Carthage Music and Theatre Club incorporated as Community Theatre for Southwest Missouri, Inc. d/b/a Stone's Throw Dinner Theatre. On May 9, 1988, Dr. Foster and Hilda Whitten donated the land on which the current theatre stands. The Theatre sponsored "A Night on Broadway '88" on September 10, 1988, raising $11,000 toward construction of the theatre building.

The Theatre is now a volunteer run, not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting, facilitating, and supporting the performing arts in Southwest Missouri and the Four-States Area.

Renovations and updates to the dining room are recently completed. Fundraising continues for future improvement projects.
