Took our 4 year old granddaughter to see this play on a Sunday afternoon. The performance was only an hour which is perfect for this age group. She enjoyed it but had a little trouble seeing the fish as a person. Haha. Only thing I...More

The exceptional aspect to this venue is its convenient location, just north of downtown Naperville. So, for those of us that hate the thought of driving to downtown Chicago to see a performance, this location is a godsend. It is a relatively small venue and...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.
