"I have been working with the team at the Legacy Theater since 2018. The one thing that stands out is that they work very hard to program something for everyone in the community. This is a proven fact because we've booked Rock, Pop, Disco, R&B, Country and even a Latin show together.  The Legacy team has always done a great job of taking care of the artists' needs when it comes to hospitality and production. It's always a pleasure to work with such a dedicated team!"

“It was such an honor to be part of a community that put their hearts and souls into resurrecting an old condemned building into this beautiful theater. Together, we sacrificed time, money, and talents to take our vision from plans to reality. One of the highlights of my professional career was watching how a theater and the arts brings people together. After being away from this exceptional place, I am returning to my roots. What began as a community dream has become a place where professionals come to share their talents. I am grateful to be part of this remarkable journey and to share my talents with all of you.”

"As a lifelong resident of Carthage, I am excited to have The Legacy Theater in town. Providing a wide variety of live entertainment, as well as educational experiences for our youth, the Theater plays a vital role in our area. I'm glad to be a part of a group that allows our young people to experience the arts and perform on stage through school programs and musicals, dance, and piano recitals."

“Every year we have the pleasure of playing some of the nation’s most prestigious theaters and opera houses across the country. The Legacy Theater in Carthage Illinois is by far one of our favorite theaters to play. Not only is the venue top-notch, but the hospitality is top-tier. The staff works very hard to make sure that you feel like you are part of the town community, and that you have all that you need to make the show the best that it can be. Cheers to 2024.”

"Serving on the Legacy Theater Board of Directors is important to me because I value the many opportunities the Theater brings to our region. Having been involved in Fine Arts programs throughout school, I recognize the impact those experiences have had on my adult life.  By serving on the Board, I hope to facilitate similar experiences for residents of our local communities.  Each time I attend a production, meeting, or recital, I am reminded of the exceptional facility, programming. and entertainment the Legacy provides. 


The Legacy Theater has something to offer everyone, no matter their age or interest. Supporting the Legacy Theater is an investment in the future of our region."
