Theatre in unexpected places
We’re a nonprofit community theatre company that believes that all the world’s a stage. We transform forgotten, abandoned, or ordinary locations into temporary live theatre spaces.
Something out of nothing.
We’re in the business of creating something out of nothing. You show us a small town Main Street; we’ll show you the streets of Jazz Age Chicago. You’ve got an 18th century barn? What a charming scene for a Harvest Party at the Van Tassel homestead. We seek out the ordinary sights of Kankakee County and transform them into the scene where we practice our craft.
Environmental theatre breaks you out of the confines of a traditional proscenium stage. You’re not just peeking in on a scene in a magical forest. You’re in the forest. We take you to the alley behind the Russell Hotel, the cobblestone streets of Paris, and the banks of the mighty Mississippi River right here in your backyard.
Sweeney Todd has become a bloody worldwide success since being awarded 8 Tony Awards which include Best Musical!
Join us in the heart of the up and coming Arts & Entertainment District in Downtown Kankakee at 356 East Merchant Street.
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to 19th century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up, and the carnage has only just begun! We invite you to attend this dark and witty tale of love, London, murder and revenge.
