About Us

The Wagon Wheel is an 800+ seat theatre in the round. We are located in Warsaw, Indiana, just 30 miles west of Fort Wayne. Some of the on-site facilities include: a full scene shop, costume shop, props shop, and a large rehearsal space that is identical to the size of the main stage. We also have a full production staff, entering their 11th successful season together. The salary for non-union actors is $300 per week. Although housing is not included, there are some very inexpensive options for living arrangements. We will provide you with a list of possible apartments or host families that are willing to take in boarders. It is your responsibility to make your own arrangements, but if you have any problems locating a place or finding a roommate feel free to call us and we will help you out.

We are very proud of our long-standing history for developing some of the finest young talent. In the past 5 years alone, the Wagon Wheel Theatre has seen over a dozen performers go directly from our stage to the Broadway stage or to national tours. We hope you may be a part of this wonderful Wagon Wheel tradition.
