Looking ahead to the upcoming winter season, the Naperville Park District has decided not to offer a Magical Starlight Theatre production in January 2022. Although COVID restrictions in Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan allow more freedom for the performing arts, uncertainty still remains regarding the availability of auditorium space in the Naperville school districts.

“We plan to reassess the Magical Starlight Theatre program in 2022,” said Program Manager Brittany Malatt. “We greatly appreciate the community’s continued interest in and support of our theater program!”


Magical Starlight Theatre was formed in September 1994 and is a program of The Naperville Park District. Magical Starlight’s express mission is to produce quality, family-oriented theatrical presentations. Magical Starlight strives to include community actors and production staff of all ages in its productions. Included have been such classics as The Wizard of Oz, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and Peter Pan. Magical Starlight provides a unique opportunity for adults and young people to work together as peers and learn from one another. In addition, a conscious effort is made to include as many family members as possible in all aspects of each production.
