2020 Season

May 6, 2020 – With the release of Illinois’ phased plan to reopen the state, we have come to the unfortunate decision to postpone our production of “9 to 5” until next summer. While we explored several options to present the show, we do not want to jeopardize the health and safety of our cast, crew, or audience members.  We will come back next summer re-energized and ready to perform our shows in a safe environment for an eager audience ready for the escape of theater.
Please continue to stay engaged with Arc Light as we post on our social media throughout the summer to help you stay engaged in the Arts in your community!

April 20, 2020 – The Arc Light Board of Directors has made the unfortunate decision to cancel our 2020 Youth Plays.  While we had hoped to still present our annual youth productions, the ever-changing information on physical distancing and uncertain path forward necessitates that we cancel these shows. We know many of the children who participate annually will be very disappointed, as will their parents and our directing teams, but it is clear that this is the socially responsible decision to make at this time.  

Our Youth Directors continue to be resilient and creative in these troubled times and are creating digital content workshops to be hosted throughout May and June so that our eager young actors can still participate with Arc Light this summer!  

The Board has also approved a one-year age extension on the cap for the youth shows so that performers who would have “aged-out” this year can still participate next year.
