School of Rock

July 27, 2024

$130 per person | Little Theatre on the Square | Sullivan, IL

Based on the hit 2003 film, School Of Rock follows Dewey Finn, a failed wannabe rock star who is down on his luck. After Dewey is kicked out of this band, and threatened with eviction, his fortunes take a turn for the better when he intercepts a phone call meant for his roommate, Ned. He quickly decides to make a bit of cash and pose as Ned to take a substitute teaching post at Horace Green, a prestigious prep school. He is horrified to discover that his straight-laced and straight-A-students haven’t a clue about rock and roll, and he makes it his mission to educate them away from the prying eyes of the school’s principal, Rosalie Mullins. Along the way, Dewey finds romance, self-worth, a proper job, and most importantly, he teaches the children and their parents the beauty of rock! 

We will enjoy a lunch buffet in a private room at Yoder’s Kitchen.

Grease

August 3, 2024

$130 per person | Little Theatre on the Square | Sullivan, IL

It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form. The 1950’s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be provocative and rebellious. At the heart of the story is the romance between hot-rodding gangster Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. Can Danny maintain this cook dude status and still make demure Sandy his girl? The whole gang sings and dances around Danny and Sandy’s romance, through such hit songs as “Greased Lightnin”, “We Go Together”, and “Mooning”, the soundtrack of a generation. Grease is the word! 

We will enjoy a lunch buffet in a private room at Yoder’s Kitchen.
