The Theatre of the Illinois Valley Since 1968
2020 PRODUCTION UPDATES
Stage 212 is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our patrons, staff, volunteers and anyone else who visits our theatre. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and keep our patrons informed via our website, Facebook page and email ticket alert system of any changes. This page will be updated as new information is available during this unprecedented time.
With this in mind, Stage 212’s Board of Directors have made adjustments to our upcoming season schedule. With all the elements that go into producing a season, between volunteers dedicating their time, set building, costume manufacturing, actor and directors availability and most of all, the limited space in our ever-growing venue, we have striven to do everything in our power to provide our patrons with our full 4- show season.
This is a difficult time for so many industries, and that certainly includes the performing arts, especially non-profits. If you are able and would like to support the theatre during this time, please consider donating as a tax-deductible gift to our Stage 212 Renovation fund. Donations can be made by clicking here.
We wish each and every one of you health and safety. In these uncertain times, stories and entertainment bring us all together- and we are doing all we can to ensure the future of the Illinois Valleys theatre, Stage 212. We appreciate your continued support.

Egotistical leading man, director, and producer Fred Graham is reunited with his ex-wife, Lilli Vanessi, when the two are forced to play opposite one another in a new production of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. The battle of the sexes continues onstage and off, as it becomes clear that, as much as this couple profess to hate each other, they are also still in love. Throw in a number of cases of mistaken identity, the mob, and comedic routines into the mix and you get Kiss Me, Kate -- a dazzling Broadway classic that earned the very first Tony award for Best Musical. With a score by Cole Porter, this production is famous for classics songs such as Another O’penin’ Another Show, Too Darn Hot and So In Love.
