Cardinal Stage Company is dedicated to advancing professional theatre in Bloomington, Indiana. They start with the classics - you know, the greatest plays in the canon - then they add musicals, new works, shows especially for young audiences and the occasional curve ball play that no one sees coming. Whatever it is, you can be sure that a Cardinal production will be highly theatrical, literate, and fun!


Cardinal Stage Company produces many of their performances at the historic Buskirk-Chumley Theater in downtown Bloomington. Season subscriptions and tickets for upcoming performances are available at the BCT Box Office on Kirkwood Avenue or on Cardinal's website.P>
