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.

Broadway Backwards, A Musical Revue and Fundraiser

Friday @ 7:30, Saturday @ 2:00 and 7:30, Wesley United Methodist Church

Our 2020 Summer Season is big, momentous, timely, and ... expensive! So we're doing a fundraiser, as only we can do. It’s an original spring musical revue, "Broadway Backwards," produced by Jeff Sand, with vocal direction by Emma Gingold and music direction by Rex Meyer.

"Broadway Backwards" will be a celebration of all your favorite Broadway tunes, turned on their heads! A female Judas belts the title song of Jesus Christ Superstar, backed up by a trio of manly angels. A stage full of male dancers invite a “Big Spender” to stay awhile. A disappointed queen sings to her “loyal, royal subjects" to remind them of her love. A baritone sings a lullaby to “young lovers, wherever you are,” while two sopranos sing of the girl who has Lily’s eyes. From Hammerstein to Hamilton, from Kander and Ebb to Pasek and Paul, we’ll present decades of Broadway tunes as you’ve never heard them before!

"Broadway Backwards" will be performed 3 times:

  • Friday, March 13 at 7:30pm
  • Saturday, March 14 at 2:00
  • and again at 7:30pm

At Wesley United Methodist Church in downtown Naperville.

If the premise sounds fun, just wait until you hear our phenomenal cast bring it to life!
