Stage 212: Curtain Call for Cinderella

by Jim Lannen

Here is your last call for the Illinois Valley's premier community theater group - Stage 212 - and their production of the world famous theatrical play, Cinderella. This weekend marks the final weekend of this highly successful performance by our area's stars.

Get your tickets now because shows are selling out fast!  View the following link for ticket information including online orders and box office hours.

Friday and Saturday evening shows begin at 7:30pm, and Sunday begins at 2. However, due to popular demand, they have also added a Saturday afternoon matinee!

Come one, come all to enjoy this wonderful classic.  And don't forget to make us part of your night out! Whether it's dinner before the play or to give your taste buds an encore after, come to the Uptown and make us part of the experience.

It is a blessing to have such a wonderful community theater as part of downtown LaSalle. With the theater just a block away, "play nights" are a wonderful experience. We enjoy the weekends when Stage 212 puts on a performance. It gives the small city of LaSalle a lively feel and gives our residents a reason to have a night out downtown.

It is great to see the community getting out and enjoying an evening. Downtown becomes the place to be. Streets are packed with cars, and sidewalks are full of people. Start with a nice dinner, a short stroll to the theater and finish with a dessert or after dinner drink on our screened in patio. Be a part of our downtown! 

(And just a reminder: Also happening this Friday evening is the Art & Wine Stroll.  If you find yourself downtown this Friday, you may want to give this a look!)

Stage 212 is an independent, non-profit corporation that has been entertaining the Illinois Valley since 1968. With over 150 productions, it began as a summer project of the Spring Valley Youth Center. Located at 212 West St. Paul St, it has evolved over all these years into a full scale community theater.

Back in 1996, around the same time we opened at our current location, Stage 212 moved into theirs just a block away from us. Over the years, we can both say that we have enjoyed each others' company. Come down this weekend and experience what amazing talent we have here in the Illinois Valley.
