We are excited to announce that we are taking our 2018 summer season ON TOUR — Our summer activities and performances will be held at Limestone High School!  Due to planned construction in the Illini Bluffs district, we are grateful to the administration at Limestone for opening their doors for our exciting 12th season.

Because of this change in location, some of our typical events have to be restructured and rescheduled from dates originally published.  Take a look at this condensed calendar to see how everything breaks down:


  • Tuesday, June 19th – Matinee/Day Camp Performances – 10:30am (Pan!) and 12:30pm (Hillbilly Hankerin’)
  • Friday, June 22nd – 6:00pm (Pan!) and 7:30pm (Hillbilly) – AND special youth production 10th anniversary activities
