Timber Lake Playhouse is the oldest continuously operating professional summer theatre company in Illinois. Celebrating its 56th season, the Playhouse is located on four acres about 140 miles west of downtown Chicago. Since 1962, TLP has served thousands of young artists in the transition from educational to professional work. The 371 seat indoor theatre has a revolving stage and a 45′ wide proscenium space, allowing for excellent production values. Housing, shops, and meal facilities are all located in 15 other buildings on the property. Timber Lake Resort is located across the street from the Playhouse. While we are not officially affiliated, the resort gives our company members free access to a beautiful in-ground pool and various other activities.
