The Theatre of the Illinois Valley Since 1968
2020 PRODUCTION UPDATES
Stage 212’s commitment to the health and safety of our patrons and participants remain our highest priority. It was the management board’s fervent hope that as time and progress was made, that the theater would be able to present our patrons with a production in 2020. This is an ever-evolving, unprecedented situation and we have been constantly monitoring, discussing, planning, re-planning and preparing for our earliest opportunity to safely deliver the live performing arts to our 212 family.
With this in mind, we understand that everyone is looking for answers in so many areas of life, and that includes in the arts. It has been decided by the Stage 212 management board that our 2020 Season, which began this past winter with the musical production of “Nunsensations: The Nunsense Vegas Revue,” will indefinitely postpone to be presented in 2021. The three remaining productions committed in our 4 production-season package are planned to be presented in 2021. Those productions include a hilarious play,“Farce of Nature,” The Cole Porter classic musical, “Kiss Me Kate” and the musical comedy, “Don’t Hug Me.” The previously announced comedic drama, “August Osage County” will no longer be presented. The dates and performance times will be available at a later date, as more information regarding the ability to safely and effectively re-open becomes available.
If you are a 2020 season pass holder your season passes which will be applied to these three productions when they are presented in 2021. Stage 212 will update via email, social media and press announcements as dates and performance times are confirmed.
It was also decided that our 2020 production of our fundraiser, “212 Sings: Cocktails & Classics” will be postponed. The production was originally rescheduled for dates in September 2020. With the current guidelines in place, it does not appear that this rescheduled date will be possible. We plan to present this fundraiser concert event as we receive more updates on when we are allowed to safely re-open.
If you are a ticket holder to “212 Sings: Cocktails and Classics” fundraiser, there are two options regarding your tickets that you can choose from. You can keep your tickets which will be applied to the to be determined future performance dates or you can request a full refund. To apply for a refund, you must submit a refund request in writing which can be e-mailed to us at or mailed to Stage 212 at PO Box 198, LaSalle IL, 61301.

If you decide to hold your tickets for our “212 Sings” fundraiser, you do not need to do anything. These tickets will be automatically transferred and we look forward to seeing you when we are able to present the concert.
Stage 212 is a small non-profit, primarily volunteer performing arts organization and aside from missing our performers, our audiences and the wonderful combination that happens when those elements meet in our theater, we are going to be missing out on an entire year of income, which keeps our organization afloat. This pandemic has hit so many industries and individuals exceedingly hard. We completely understand and empathize along with our devoted ‘212’ patrons and participants. We greatly appreciate your patience, understanding and support as we navigate this unprecedented time. Stage 212 has been an institution of the Illinois Valley for 52 years, and we are dedicated to continuing to contribute to the great history that Stage 212 brings to our community.
