Summer Place Theater has been Naperville’s Community Theatre since 1966. You typically see their productions in the auditorium at Naperville Central High School – when the kids move out for summer, they move-in – but due to Covid restrictions, they’re moving outdoors this year. What’s not to love about sitting outdoors on a summer evening being entertained? Especially when it’s safer to be socially distanced when outdoors. And to match the unique circumstances, each month they’ll bring you a unique, original program. The opening show in June is a singing celebration of the season called “Summer Lovin'” – featuring tons of showtunes about summer. Then Summer Place Theater is holding Christmas in July – as many of us didn’t get much of a holiday feeling last December. They follow that performance with a 1940’s old-time radio show adaptation of A Christmas Carol. Finally, in August, an original musical based on the true-life story of longtime Summer Place board member Ted Waltmire as he recovers from a stroke, written by Ted himself! All 3 shows will be performed safely outdoors. For ticket and information about the performance please visit their website.
