For nearly fifty years, no matter what space we’re occupying, the joy and thrill of telling stories and connecting with others has been the glue of our institution. We genuinely strive to “spark imagination” in every single endeavor, because we believe in the potential of everyone!


All of us at Matchbox have thought carefully and thoroughly about our current stand on masks.

We have come to the decision to continue requesting they be worn for the time being,

as our primary contact are kiddos.

We know we know - we don't like it either. BUT however we can help!

Thank you so much for your cooperation and understanding!

Thank you one and all!!

A letter from the President of our Board:

You may notice some new swag in our front yard and I promise, everything is OK!

Yes, we're selling our building. NO WE'RE NOT CLOSING!!!

Our current location simply is not serving our needs, and instead of trying to make another season work in there we are taking a leap of faith!

Our short term goal is to move into the basement of First United Methodist Church so we can regroup and raise money for our dream location while being able to have a safe and accessible space. It is so important to us that all of our community be able to come play with us.

We are also looking for a temporary space for our costume stock that is temp controlled and handicapped accessible.

There will be hiccups, there will be weird but most importantly there will be fun! We will spark imaginations no matter where we land and we are excited for this journey.

If you have any questions, concerns, leads or donations please feel free to reach out through Facebook messenger, on our website here, or you can call me (507) 219-1312. We love to talk about all things Matchbox!
