Love going to concerts here. Low keyed and intimate theater that tries to bring in a diverse selection of performers. Reasonably priced with concerts aimed at children, retirees and everything in between. Come check out their offerings.

Went to a Motown review. Theater size is perfect for music performances. Live jazz before the show and alcoholic beverages available to purchase. Great evening with coworkers.

Yelp Review

This is a great local theater. Whether you are looking for a venue to host your own show or a great night out, this place is for you. We have done both. I am always impressed by the quality of entertainment that makes its way to the heart of Park Forest. Really top notch! Rentals prices and ticket fees are affordable. Staff is friendly. The space is very nice. I highly recommend it.
