Festival 56’s Princeton Theater Group is a non-profit professional theatre organization located in Princeton, Illinois. Performances are held each summer at the Grace Performing Arts Center and feature a cast and crew of professional theatre artists assembled from across the country who are housed by community members during the summer season. Our productions include musicals, comedies, and dramas as well as free Shakespeare in the Park. We offer a summer drama camp for students ages 8-14 with participants performing in one of the major productions. Additional special events and productions are offered throughout the year including musical groups, comedy acts, magicians, cabarets, and holiday programs. Festival 56 is a non-profit organization and gratefully accepts support and donations year-round.
