We are thrilled to have the opportunity to offer our annual winter theatre production, this year featuring Seussical Jr. Please note that this year we will have several safety precautions in place to make theatre a safe and comfortable environment for all cast members, staff and volunteers. A few changes you will see are mandatory face coverings, enhanced cleaning and remaining socially distant as much as possible. We aim to have an in-person production in April, with contingency plans put in place. Please call the Arts/Special Events Manager at (847) 690-1109 with any questions regarding the theatre program. The show must go on!
