Illinois College TheatreWorks | Spring 2021
Spring Theatre Festival | April 23 - 25, April 29 - 30 and May 1 - 2
Illinois College TheatreWorks presents the Spring Theatre Festival. Members of the Illinois College community are invited to see the entire show live with (frequently tested) unmasked actors. The festival includes two racy 10-minute comedies (Time Flies by David Ives and Small World by Tracey Wilson — not appropriate for young audiences), and The Theory of Relativity by Neil Bartram and Brian Hill. This is a joyous and moving musical about our surprisingly interconnected lives. Whether you're allergic to cats, in love for the first or tenth time, a child of divorce, or a germaphobe, you will find yourself or someone you know in this work through buoyant ballads and tunes that will stay with you days after the performance.

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.
