Check out Breese IL live theater line-up for 2021 for the perfect ending to your day.  

Moon Over Buffalo

This show is a comedy set in Buffalo, New York in 1953 and follows George and Charlotte Hay, two haggard Broadway should-have-beens. As they grumble and moan about missed opportunities and what could have been, marital bliss turns to deceit and dishonesty. Charlotte runs away and George goes on a drinking binge. But their big break is on it’s way and those close to them are hilariously scrambling to get George and Charlotte’s “act” together before it all goes awry. Purchase tickets here

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

What started off as one of the most famous editorials ever written quickly became an on-stage sensation as well with this heartwarming story started by 8 year-old Virginia O’Hanlon in 1897. The play imagines the scenario of Virginia trying to discover if Santa Claus is real, eventually writing to The Sun newspaper for an answer. The response from newsman, Francis Church, gives her answers and hope. But it also stirs something in Francis, eliciting change and the Christmas spirit within him.
