Evergreen Park Recreation Department Candlelight Theatre


The Evergreen Park Candlelight Theatre is a community activity brought to you by the Evergreen Park Recreation Department.

We thank Evergreen Park Mayor James Sexton; Village Clerk Cathy Aparo ; the Village Trustees;  the Recreation Department staff; and the skilled tradesmen who have made the Senior Center available for this new creative endeavor. We are very thankful for our corporate sponsors for their financial help with each production, which keeps the ticket costs down to a level that is FAMILY-AFFORDABLE with plays and musicals that are FAMILY-FRIENDLY. (So please. . .support your local Evergreen Park businesses).

Auditions, rehearsals and performances of the Evergreen Park Candlelight Theatre take place in the Evergreen Park Senior Center, 9547 S. Homan Avenue.

On the performance dates, we have a mix of small banquet tables and row seating, which make up a very intimate theatre experience. The Evergreen Park Candlelight Theatre Program is a community theatre, providing an outlet for local talent of all ages. Tickets for all productions are available in advance at the Community Center, 3450 W. 97th Street.

Our current season of live theatre is on hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  We hope to resume live theatre by next Spring, but that will happen only when it is 100% safe to do so.

Until then, however, you can't keep "The Little Theatre That Could" down!

A weekly thirty-minute variety show, which premiered on Sunday, October 4;  featuring memorable performances by local performers.  Available for viewing on the website on Sunday and Wednesday evenings from 8pm to midnight.     Audition requests can be directed to epcandlelight@gmail.com.

The program was pre-recorded during the months of August and September, and all Covid safety precautions were put in place, including social distancing, mask-wearing during rehearsals, temperature checks, mouth-washing and facility cleaning.
