Beloit Civic Theatre

The Beloit Civic Theatre has been presenting Broadway's best to audiences from the stateline area for over 70 years. Founded as the Beloit Little Theatre Guild back in 1932, its history is one to be envied by any community group. The year 1932 was the first season that a play was produced by the Little Theatre Guild. The cast of that production reads like a "Who's Who of Beloit". Profits from that first successful season were donated to the Municipal Hospital for X-ray work. The first season closed with one additional play and a membership of 250 people.

By the next year, Beloit and the surrounding area had taken the Theatre Guild to their hearts. A membership of 1300 made it the largest community theater in the state of Wisconsin. In 1948 the name of the Guild was changed to the present day, Beloit Civic Theatre. In 1952 it was incorporated as a non-profit organization.
