The Station Theatre is a small independent dramatics theatre located in downtown Urbana, Illinois. It was converted into a theatre from a Big Four Railway passenger station in 1967.[1] At that time, it was called The Depot. The building was last used as a passenger station in 1956.

The theatre is now run by the Celebration Company, which was founded in 1972.
