Welcome to the Pipestone Performing Arts Center

The Pipestone Performing Arts Center is located at 104 East Main Street, in the heart of Pipestone's Historic District. This District is recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. The Center is housed in a Sioux quartzite building which dates back to 1897.

We are managed by a very dedicated group of community volunteers and our Managing Director, Dennis Hansen.  The Pipestone Performing Arts Center is the host stage for the Calumet Players, the Calumet Players Children's Theater, and the Al Opland Singers.  

The Calumet Players offer great community theater with shows directed, managed, and acted out by local or area talents.  They produce three shows a year, generally a mid-winter event, fall event and a summertime musical. The Children's Theater produces one show per year with local youth entertaining all theater goers.

The Al Opland Singers have been a local tradition for many, many years.  They have called our stage home since our opening.  Twice a year, this group of talented voices from around the area entertains our audiences.  We gladly welcome bus tours and group events with advance notification.

Please be sure to check out our website at to view our current event schedule, read our current newsletter and purchase tickets. We can also be found at Facebook at
