LOCATION

Northwoods Community Church • Peoria Campus

Arrival

We encourage all parties to arrive early and at the same time so that you can pass through security and find seats together.

Childcare

Free childcare is available, birth through age three. The show is family friendly, but free childcare is available, if you prefer.

Security

All patrons will pass through security checkpoints, and all large bags will be inspected.

For more information about the show, email or call the church at 309-243-1550.

What if I don’t have a ticket? 

Patrons with tickets will be seated first, but any available seats will be released to un-ticketed guests approximately 10 minutes before the start of the show. We do our best to accommodate everyone we can. Overflow seating will be made available as needed.

When should I arrive?

We know it sounds crazy, but we recommend arriving about 90 minutes before the show so that you have plenty of time to park and make it through a security checkpoint before the auditorium doors open 30 minutes before the show. If you are bringing guests, we recommend that you all arrive at the same time.

What should I bring (or NOT bring)? 

When you arrive, you will be asked to go through a security checkpoint. All large bags will be inspected, so we ask that you leave them at home or in the car, if possible, to speed up the security process.

Can I get special seating?

Advance seating will be available for parties needing wheelchair seating or with other special circumstances. Please arrive 60 minutes prior to showtime and make your way to the designated assistance area, which is located in the southeast portion of the lobby. Contact any usher, greeter, or other event personnel for directions.

What if the weather is bad?

Any cancellation or postponement of performances will be communicated as early and as broadly as possible. Notifications will be sent via local broadcast media, this website, and the Northwoods social media channels.

Will the production be streamed online?

The production will be broadcast via the Northwoods Online Campus on December 23 at 7pm and December 24 at 10am.
