In the Park... In the Dark!
A Naperville tradition! A night of fun for audiences of all ages!
It's on! But we're taking precautions to minimize the transmission of covid-19. Keep reading below the map.
A group of story tellers delight the audience with chilling and thrilling ghost stories; some old, some original from the story tellers.
We do 2 kinds of shows. The first is more silly and not too scary so younger kids (5 and up) are welcome to that one; then we do a slightly scarier and more cerebral batch of stories that get under the skin, so older kids (teens and up) usually like this show more.

We're following the rules of Restore Illinois Phase 4, so group limits and seating will be strictly enforced.
The rules say there's a maximum of 50 people at the event. Since we have actors and staff under 10 people, we'll set the number of tickets at 40 per show.
Tickets are on sale through the Park District. More on that below.
Individuals must sit 6ft from the next person in the row. Family groups can sit together, but must keep 6ft between their group edge and that of the next group. If not enough room in the row, ushers will direct attendees to other seats. Attendees not complying will be asked to comply and if they refuse will be asked to leave. Park district police oversee the area and will be brought in if necessary.
Rows of benches will run the entire width of the pavilion with no break in the middle. Audience will be directed to enter a row from either end and move to the middle. Bench rows will be 6 ft apart from front of bench to front of bench.
Let's all do our part to have an enjoyable evening as safely as possible!
Juice and Cider and Cookies has been a long-standing after-show treat, but in practicing an abundance of caution under the circumstances, no refreshments will be served after the show. Sorry!
