From shows performed by younger people or during camps, to performances put on by semi-professionals, there is literally something for everyone.
This summer in Champaign-Urbana, shows on the docket include classic favorites such as: Guys and Dolls (Champaign Park District) and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Champaign Urbana Theater Company); favorite character shows such as Seussical, Fancy Nancy and Curious George; and some new favorites like Hairspray and the very ambitious Billy Elliot The Musical.
Our Champaign-Urbana summer musical theater show listing includes family-friendly shows only, although the level of age “appropriateness” will vary from show to show. While we try to focus on shows that are low-cost, prices vary greatly, so please read the fine print for each show.
Enjoy the show(s)!
