We wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year!
Parker Playhouse shut its doors in June of this year when the State of Illinois purchased our building as part of the future underpass project scheduled on Route 14. However, rather than view the transfer as a setback, we chose to view the transfer as an opportunity to reinvent ourselves.
We are now Parker Players- a theater “company” rather than a theater “house”. We are currently searching for a permanent home for our company but even when we find one, we will function as a resident company within that space, hoping to rent and share with other art centered organizations.
Our mission as Parker Players is to craft productions showcasing the local talents of our artistic community and deliver high quality theater to Barrington. We will license, audition, cast, rehearse and present a full season of entertainment.
Barrington and the surrounding communities are home to many talented performing artists. We want to connect with those folks, cast age appropriately and provide them with the opportunity to shine!
