Mainstage Plays -  in the Lou & Nancy Schauer Mainstage Theatre


The Mousetrap

September 5 - 15, 2024

Mainstage 1

Agatha Christie’s iconic murder mystery is the world’s most successful and longest-running play! Strangers with a killer in their midst reveal their sordid pasts while snowed in at a guesthouse. Millions of playgoers have kept the secret of The Mousetrap’s fabulous twist ending.




Young Frankenstein

October 17 - 27, 2024

Mainstage 2

The comedy genius Mel Brooks adapts his legendarily funny film into a brilliant musical stage creation! With such memorable tunes as "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz," Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven, monstrously good entertainment.





February 13 - 23, 2025

Mainstage 3

Based on the terrifying novel by Stephen King which became the hit film. A successful romance novelist is rescued from a car crash by his “number one fan.” After waking up captive in her secluded home, he is forced to write a new novel as if his life depended on it, and it does.




Noises Off!

May 29 - June 8, 2025

Mainstage 4

Called “the funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.




Forum Plays - in the Mary Cattell Theatre

Birthday Candles

September 26 – October 6, 2024

Forum 1

This poignant Broadway hit, about the extraordinary moments that make up one woman’s ordinary life, explores the highlights and heartbreaks of 100 years in just 90 minutes. “For my money, Birthday Candles is precisely why people go to the theater.” – Chicago Tribune





Outside Mullingar

January 23 – February 2nd, 2025

Forum 2

From the writer of Moonstruck, Outside Mullingar is a compassionate, delightful work about how it’s never too late to take a chance on love. Anthony and Rosemary’s romantic journey is heartbreaking, funny, and ultimately deeply moving.
