Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre

9301 Michigan Rd., Indianapolis, IN 46268 | view on map

The "boards" in Beef & Boards refers to "the boards" -- the theatre term for "the stage." We are Indiana's only year-round, equity dinner theatre. Equity refers to the Actors' Equity Association, the only union for professional actors. Did you know there are only six other full-time, equity dinner theatres in the entire country? And Beef & Boards is celebrating its 41st season--lucky for Indy!

And the "beef" part? That's a nod to the hand-carved roast beef that we serve (along with other items) before performances. We also offer a full-service bar and gourmet desserts in a comfortable, intimate atmosphere on Indianapolis' north side.

Entertaining more than 155,000 theatergoers annually, Beef & Boards provides Broadway musicals from Rodgers and Hammerstein favorites to recent hits like Mary Poppins, in addition to several Pyramid Players productions each year which are designed for preschool through fifth-grade students.
