Enjoy summertime showtunes at our first live musical since March 2020
After the year we've had, we could use some good news. Well, here it is: Summer Place Theatre is BACK, and we're thrilled to announce the cast of our first show of the 2021 season! Summer Lovin' is an original musical revue conceived and directed by Emma Gingold and Jeff Sand, with music direction by Rex Meyer. The 21-person cast and the live band are made up of the finest musicians in the Chicago area, and they can't wait to perform live outdoors this June.
Because our live show was a sell-out - and because we want to satisfy your urge for a fun, scary story! - we are creating a a second storytelling session that will be virtual over the last three weekends in October.
Labor Day = unofficial end of summer, but "We'll Meet Again"
Happy Labor Day! Today we honor our workers and the fight for a fair wage, but Labor Day also means the unofficial end of summer. What a fitting time to sing one last song in this "Summer Season That Wasn't." Read more for the links, and ways to see more video.

We had such a wonderful time premiering our first performance, "Songs of Hope," that we're doing it again!
