For more than 30 years, the award-winning Northbrook Theatre Children’s Company has presented “theatre by youth for youth.” The actors are in grades 6-10 and perform age-appropriate plays and musicals suitable for family viewing.

The Bright Star Theatre Company

The North Suburban Special Recreation Association (NSSRA) produces this theater program for teens with special needs. Participants are joined by volunteer Creative Companions (CCs) and Northbrook Park District Theatre staff to help facilitate a professional production. 

This program meets weekly from September to April. The experience combines theatre games, movement exercises and musical training with rehearsals for a fully-mounted musical production. The culmination of the program is a spring performance for friends and family at the Northbrook Theatre. Actors and companions register for the program through NSSRA.
