BrightSide Theatre

BrightSide Theatre is Naperville’s only professional theater company performing in the heart of the downtown Naperville district. The organization was created with a commitment to enlighten, educate, and entertain through comedies and inspirational stories from across the globe.  By blending award-winners, premieres, modern works and timeless classics, the theatre group allows for the opportunity to reflect upon and inform the community through their performances.

This summer the BrightSide Theatre will be performing Hairspray the Broadway Musical from June 8 to 24 at Meiley Swallow Hall (at the intersection of Ellsworth & Van Buren) on the campus of North Central College. Hairspray, a winner of eight Tony Awards, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. And, with seating on three sides of the stage, the audience is guaranteed to be less than thirty feet from the performance.
