Short Description
We started out in Bartonville in the 1980's as the Campus Players. By the 90's we had changed our name to Artistic Community Theatre and relocated to Pekin. We had a theatre in the old Pekin Mall, we also were in the Pekin Park Pavilion. We have been a vagabond troupe since the early 2000's. Performing quality shows around the community at different location.
We are pleased to announce that in the spring of 2022 we were able to acquire the use of a building that is being renovated into an intimate cabaret style performance space! Our little theatre located at 407 Court Street in downtown Pekin, will be a jewel for the community bringing quality theatre, art, and culture. The space will be available to host events, open mic nights, improv, comedy, plays, and classes for adults and children.
We can't wait to entertain you!
