The Summer Place, Naperville’s Community Theatre since 1966, proudly stands in solidarity with the Black members of our community and across the nation during this time of pain, protest and yes, progress towards a better future. One without overreach of power; without a perception of superiority of one person over another; one with justice for all. Black Lives Matter. We join in the efforts to make that statement a reality in the minds and hearts of everyone in our community and around the world.

Due to the impact of the Coronavirus, Our 2020 Summer Season - Cabaret, The Diary of Anne Frank, and The Sound of Music - has been cancelled.

See the struggles and horrors of the Holocaust through the eyes of 13-year-old Anne as she navigates the confusing world of adolescence, while hiding in a tiny room with her Jewish family in 1940s Amsterdam during World War II. Based on real diary entries from 1942 to 1945, The Diary of Anne Frank won both the Tony and the Pulitzer the year it opened.

The 3rd act of our 3-act season celebrating the strength of the human spirit through difficult times. Nun-in-training Maria becomes the governess for the seven von Trapp children, who refused to be brought in line until Maria worked her musical magic. Set in Nazi controlled Austria, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic contains such gems as “Do-Re-Mi,” “Climb Every Mountain,” and “Edelweiss.”
