?? Surprise Musical ??

Three Weekends: July 19-August 4; Location TBD

Directed & Choreographyed by Samantha Sieghart.

Our super-secret, super-cool third show is slotted for the end of July, and we're so excited about it we're doing it for three weekends! We've reserved the rights for the show, but it's so new that the publisher will not allow us to announce the title until April 1.

Guess it and you may win!

Are you a Broadway buff and think you know what the show is? Those deduction skills may earn you a free ticket! You already know that our theme is "Escape to the Islands" so that's a big clue, and its a new musical - we're the first community theatre in the area to perform it - so that should be enough for the musical theatre fans out there to know what we're planning. And here's how you can win:

Guess the title, signup for our newsletter and watch for the announcement. 10 people chosen at random from those entries with the correct guess will get a pair of free tickets to see the show!

Take a Guess!


We're really bummed that we can't tell you what show it is, because we are brimming with anticipation! And we think you'll love it as much as we do. This show, plus South Pacific and My Three Angels, is just the ticket for a summer island escape, so why not grab a season ticket to lock in the lowest price right now! We'll try to contain our enthusiasm, but in the mean time, keep an eye on our Auditions page, “like” us on Facebook, and sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date on important season announcements!


Our home for over 20 years, the Naperville Central High School Auditorium ("when the kids move out, we move in!"), will be under construction this summer, installing a brand new lighting system. It'll be great for the kids when they get back in the fall, but it's putting us out of a home this summer. The decision was recently made to perform the work, so we're busy right now looking for new quarters. (See our news article for more details)

No worries; we'll put on a show if we have to go back to performing in a tent, like we did for years when we first started. As soon as we know, we'll post it here, and notify all our ticket holders as well via email.


Unified auditions for our three 2019 shows will occur in April. By then, you'll know for sure, but keep your calendar open anyway because you're going to want to be in this!
