Corn Stock Theatre

Recently we decided to do something different to stave off cabin fever. We took in a live performance at Corn Stock Theatre.
I had never been to the theatre at 1700 N. Park Road in Peoria, but StfRon was in one of their productions many years ago.
This show, 100 Minutes of Theatre, was held in their winter playhouse. We paid $10 each for our reserved tickets and filed into the theatre, joining about 75 people sitting on patio chairs arranged stadium style.
100 Minutes featured several short plays, each approximately 10 minutes in length. I enjoyed some of them better than others, with the off the wall Detective Droopy by far being my favorite.
Corn Stock Theatre, founded in 1954, puts on several shows throughout the summer and winter. Season tickets for the summer season (performed in the outdoor tent) are available for $62.
