Theatre's history

From Mrs. Harry Spradling's initial formation of the 1928 Carthage Music Club performing musical shows in schools, churches and other locations, in the 1970s the scope of the entertainment was broadened to include theatrical productions as part of the Missouri Federation of Music Clubs. This newly formed Carthage Music and Theatre Club on September 11, 1984 was incorporated as the Community Theatre for Southwest Missouri Inc., otherwise known as the Stone's Throw Dinner Theatre. Four years later Dr. Foster and Hilda Whitten donated the land on which the current theatre stands and money was raised towards construction of a theatre building.
