Thanksgiving week is full of activities between cooking, eating and starting your holiday shopping. But if you’re looking for more to do this week – either for grown up fun, entertaining visiting friends and family or just something to keep the kids busy during the long weekend – we got you covered!


Work life gets a little tense when the workers at Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory demand a raise of 7 ½ cents in this musical set in 1954! Especially when things between the new superintendent and the head of the union grievance committee get steamy. The award winning musical had everything from love interests, real life work situations, comedy, and lots of “symbolism” as the comedic character and narrator, Hines, says throughout.  From the enthusiastic dance moves during the “Once-A-Year Day” number, to the deep and sultry sounds of Curtis Bannisters voice in “Hey There,” this musical truly had me on the edge of my seat.


Walking into The Center for Visual and Performing Arts, home to Theatre at the Center, the atmosphere immediately makes you feel the old thrill of getting dolled up and going to see a show. The pride and love of theater and the arts is obvious in the décor of the main lobby. Photos of past shows cover the outer auditorium walls, displaying the memories of shows past.



I had the privilege of attending the Theatre at the Center’s production of Miracle on 34th Street: The Musical this past Saturday. I can easily say this performance is nothing short of amazing and utterly heartwarming. A wonderful story of family, love, tradition, and belief was carefully and thoughtfully performed by the cast of this performance. 



If you’ve already binge watched every Netflix series you can possibly think of and the kids are pestering you to get out of the house - we have some ideas for you for those rainy days in Northwest Indiana:


The Theatre at the Center in Munster always provides a wonderful array of productions. The Lady with All the Answers is no exception. I have seen a ton of plays and musicals, but this one was my first one-man show. I was a bit worried I would find it boring with only one person being up on stage and the fact that I did not know who Ann Landers was. However, I found the whole play from beginning to end to be very enjoyable. 


I really enjoy going to the theater. It makes me feel fancy and very grown up. Sometimes I imagine myself as an "empty-nester" enjoying a show with my friends. I recently went to see The Odd Couple at Theatre at the Center and it didn't disappoint. Full of laughs and in a cozy setting - there isn't a bad seat in the house.
