About the Oakdale Theatre

In 1996, the current Oakdale Theatre was built, transforming the old in-the-round theatre into the gracious theatre by adding a 4600-seat theatre with a proscenium stage that would now rival any entertainment center in the Northeast.  With the new shape came the big stars: Sting, Tina Turner, Rod Stewart, Springsteen, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Robin Williams, Coldplay, Josh Groban, and Jerry Seinfeld, to name a few. The new theatre also afforded Oakdale to present Broadway sized shows as the new stage was able to hold the large sets. 'Riverdance',, 'Grease', 'The Producers', 'Seussical', 'Movin Out' and more were all part of the Broadway Series that ran for 10 years. The old alfalfa field that turned into one of the regions premier concert venues has seen its share of stars. The next time history is made at Oakdale, will you be there?
