High School Summer Theatre Production

Don't miss an opportunity to witness one of the finest High School Theater groups in downstate Illinois! Our mission is to provide local high school students the opportunity to practice their craft in an outdoor, community setting.

Restroom facilities as well as wheelchair seating are available. Patrons are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets for seating. Some rental chairs are available at the music theater performances. We also encourage you to bring insect repellent and a flashlight! Concessions will be available.
