Past Performances

Winter Break - Illinois College Theatreworks

Winter Break by Joe Calarco, directed by Nancy Taylor Porter | November 11- 13, 7:30 p.m. & November 14, 2 p.m.

Following the lives of 19 teenagers on the last day before winter break, this play shows how they navigate new and old friendships, breaking up, being alone and belonging, losing a family member, unearthing ghosts of the past, and discovering their own path. With both warmth and humor, Winter Break opens our eyes to new possibilities and helps us find comfort in our shared experiences.

The Mountaintop tells the story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on his last day on earth: April 3, 1968 in the Lorraine Motel. In this riveting story, Katori Hall humanizes the civil rights leader and historic icon as King connects with Camae through moments of joy, laughter, sadness, and grief. The play enables us to reconnect with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a flawed man who heeded the call of his Maker.
