Cardinal Stage produces its shows at two historic venues in downtown Bloomington.


Buskirk-Chumley Theater

The historic Buskirk-Chumley Theater is located in the heart of Bloomington, on Kirkwood Ave, a half block East of the Square. The BCT has a box office that sells tickets for Cardinal shows at that venue only.
PARKING is available behind the theater (enter from 4th Street), with free parking after 5pm weekdays and weekends.

Shows: Of Mice and Men and Mary Poppins

Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center

The Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center is located one block South of the Square at the corner of 4th and Walnut. The Ivy Tech Waldron has two theater spaces: The Ivy Tech Waldron Auditorium (third floor) and the Ivy Tech Waldron Rose Firebay (on the ground floor). A ticket box office for Icy Tech Waldron shows is only available 1 hour prior to show.
PARKING is available in Parking Garage on the South side of 4th Street, with free parking after 5pm weekdays and weekends.

Cardinal Stage’s Box Office & Administrative Offices are located at 900 South Walnut Street.  The Cardinal Box Office is open weekdays 10am-5pm, Saturdays 12-5pm.
There is ample PARKING for Cardinal’s Box Office and Administration building in the lot immediately adjacent to the building (north). The parking lot can be accessed as you head south on College St and sweep east below 1st Street toward Walnut St.  Look for the box office sign and driveway to the right as you cross the Clear Creek Aqueduct.  There is another entrance to the same parking lot near the big Cardinal Stage sign on Walnut Street.



There is typically ample metered street parking as well as metered lots and garages in close proximity to both the Buskirk-Chumley Theater and the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center. Metered parking is $.25/15mins and is free after 9pm weekdays and Saturday and all day Sunday unless otherwise posted.
