Our History

Richard and Donna Myers have been a dynamic duo since saying “I do.” Now in their 70’s, the couple started their lives together by running a bridal shop out of a restored mansion in Danville, Illinois. While they sold wedding gowns during the day, the couple began dabbling in theatre at night and hosting small shows in their store. This dabbling turned into an exciting opportunity to serve and connect with people when the couple decided to rent a small space in Waynetown, Indiana and officially opened Myers Dinner Theatre.  When MDT outgrew the small store front theatre, Richard and Donna began searching for another space. They purchased the current building in Hillsboro, Indiana in 2002. Prior to being a theatre, the building held racquetball courts and was in need of quite a bit of work to be able to function as a theatre. Years later, Myers Dinner Theatre is a staple in Hillsboro, Indiana, and we are thankful to be part of a hospitable, charming community. Through homemade meals and theatrical productions, Richard, Donna, and their staff want to raise the spirits of those who are low, bring a sense of peace to those in need, hear the laughter reach the rafters, and bring a message of hope through theatre with a purpose.

The Montgomery County Rotary Jail Museum

There’s quite a bit of history in our neck of the woods, and Crawfordsville, Indiana is home of the only remaining operational rotary jail in the United States. What is a rotary jail you might be wondering? With the use of a crank, jail cells rotate and used to allow one prisoner to get in or out of his cell at a time. The jail opened in 1882 and closed in 1973. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 and now functions as a museum. You can also visit the old sheriff’s home next door. This is a unique landmark that you will definitely want to see.   Learn More...
