Joseph 2020!

The Holiday Tradition Continues!!

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat returns for a unique viewing experience.  Thousands of people have enjoyed the magic that is Joseph over the last 29 years, so be sure to join us for this Central Illinois holiday tradition.  We are missing our annual JOSEPH family and patrons but hope you enjoy a compilation seamlessly integrated for in-home viewing.

This Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical tells the story of Joseph and his eleven brothers. It was created as a soft rock fantasy that is fit for the entire family.

Season update…

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Eastlight Theatre will be cancelling the remainder of our 2020 season. Although we were able to successfully perform Something Rotten outdoors, it proved to be too costly to continue to produce the rest of our season outdoors. We were honored to be able to put on at least one show during these trying times. We successfully proved it could be done safely, responsibly and professionally. It is our hope to be able to produce the 30th anniversary of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in December. Due to the uncertainty of policies surrounding COVID-19 and our venue logistics, we are unable to 100% commit to producing Joseph at this time; therefore if you will be seeking a refund of your season tickets, Joseph will be included in this refund. In the event that we can produce Joseph, season ticket holders will have the first opportunity to purchase a ticket before they go on sale to the general public. Current season ticket holders are encouraged to donate the remaining balance of your season tickets to Eastlight Theatre.

Please remember that we are a not-for-profit, which means we rely heavily on season ticket sales as operating revenue to keep producing shows for Central Illinois. We also are encouraging all patrons to support Eastlight with a tax-deductible donation to ensure the theatre’s survival through this pandemic. Caterpillar employees can make double the difference with the CAT Matching Grant.

Donations can be made via our website or you can mail them to us at PO Box 8055 East Peoria IL 61611

If you would like to request a pro-rated refund for your season tickets, information will be forthcoming; thank you for your patience and understanding.
