I fist saw the Conklin theatre group in the early 1970's at a hotel in Bloomington IL. When they moved to the big old barn in Goodfield I went often They did a marvelous job turning the barn into a dinner theatre. It was always so much fun having the actors serve you during dinner before the show. It was a hard job for them but it made me feel like I really a part of the whole experience. I moved to the Chicago area in the late 70's. We went w few times when I came back to visit relatives but eventually we stopped going to the theatre as my parents were aging and it was a a hours trip. My Mom now lives in Peoria and my fiend lives in Washington. When I was visiting my friend took me back to the Barn II last year. This year my Mom was feeling well so I took her there for Mothers Day brunch. She loved it. My Spousal equivalent had never been there and he really enjoyed it. The food is good. The acting is. Rey good. I see many plays in Chicago and it think the acting at the Barn II is quality acting. I encourage everyone in central IL or who is visiting there to give it a try. They do comedies so even the person who doesn't like heavy theatre should enjoy themselves. Take friends, take family, get tickets and go. Prices are good and if you have people who jVe trouble walking just let them know you need to sit on the first floor.
