Over the years I lived in Naoerville the little town of quaint shops transformed into a collection of fine restaurants and shops rivaling any mall or business district. There was also the beautiful Riverwalk as an added attraction. I heard many times, "if we only had great theater near by, this would be the perfect spot." Thanks to the vision... More

We have seen some excellent theater and music by top singers & bands. A great inexpensive evening for all. Since we are seniors we are also offered a discount!

Whoever balances their music thinks you just want to hear the band. When I go to see a particular singer such as Scotty Mcreery, I want to hear his voice. Needless to say, I couldn't except for the one line he delivered, "Who would have thought that all this would have started with just 10 words: Baby lock the door... More

We always enjoy the performances at North Central College, especially at Wentz or Pfeiffer. The ticket prices are fair- even when the performance is a "biggger name". The student productions are generally not crowded and the quality is superb.

The North Central college offers a great theater experience. The quality of the experience is far and above the price you pay. We go to 3-4 offerings every year with friends. Many very talented alum return to add a professional quality to many plays.

The Wentz Hall and the Performing Arts Center at North Central College in Naperville is a real gem....Look in the paper for upcoming events as there are some very good musical and arts events with "bigger names" for a small college.

North Central College invested in a wonderful performing arts center a few years ago and we have attended several events there. They have both high quality offerings presented by local and collegiate groups as well as professional musicians. The venue is first class and it is in downtown Naperville, so it is easy to walk a few blocks and share... More

The new performing arts center at Wentz Hall is very lovely, and a great value for the theater goer. All too often, theater is overly expensive, but not so here.
