Welcome to lookingglassplayhouse.com, the official site for the Looking Glass Playhouse, a community theater located in beautiful, historic downtown Lebanon, Illinois.



Our new season is about to begin! Auditions for the opening show of the 2014-15 season, The Addams Family, will be at the theater on Saturday, August 9, at 1:00 (this is a change from the date listed on the brochure). Candidates for roles should be prepared to sing 16 measures of an upbeat Broadway tune with our accompanist (please bring sheet music), do a cold reading from the script and snap their fingers in rhythm. There will also be a short dance audition. There will be a limited children’s chorus (ages 5-12) for select scenes. Performances are: September 25, 26, 27, 28 and October 2, 3, 4, and 5. For further information, email the director, Don Urban, at dongi33@aol.com or call him at 618-537-2544.
