Carousel Theatre of Indianola

Bringing theatre to our community for over 50 years.


A Letter from the Carousel Theatre Board of Directors:

It is with heavy hearts the Carousel Board announces that our 2021 Spring production of Next to Normal has been postponed to next season (2021/22) along side our two fall shows, [Title of Show] and And Then There Were None.

At this time, we are planning two more COVID safe events for early in the 2021 season.  We do not currently have any plans to produce a live performance with audience members until the pandemic is well under control.

Never fear, we will be back stronger and better than ever! For now, keep you and your family healthy and keep an eye out for further announcements from your friends at Carousel Theatre of Indianola!

The Play-Write Project

We, like so many other theatre lovers, are feeling the pain of not being able to do the art form we love. In an effort to bring a creative outlet to our community, we are excited to present our first ever “Play-Write” Project, Carousel’s newest artistic endeavor.
