“The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” will be playing to two weekends of SOLD OUT crowds.  We are considering adding a Saturday matinee on December 13th, but have some details to work out before that can be solidified.

Check back here frequently!

51 Looks Good on Us

As we enter our 51st season, we are working on a “facelift”. Nancy Dice has graciously refinished all the woodwork in the Depot (Gorgeous!) and is working on new window coverings as well.

We have upgraded the womens restroom, installed a new door, and will be getting dormer work done soon.


Sadly, several Depot windows were victim to vandalism last month and much to our distress had to be replaced.  We encourage you to be diligent in reporting any suspicous activity around our little theatre.

Stop in and see us.  We are all decked out for Christmas and “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” !

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

“The Herdman’s were the worst kids in the history of the whole world.  They lied, and stole, and smoked cigars– even the girls…”

Grace Bradley finds herself roped into directing the church Christmas Pageant — the same old pageant with the same old carols and the same old Mary and Joseph– that is util the Herdman’s show up and hijack the whole show. 

Director’s Pat Piper and Tammy Hileman invite you to join them at the Depot for a night of hilarity, mayhem, and a little dose of the magic that surrounds the Christmas season. 

The show opens on December 4th with a dinner catered by Boondocks of Peru and features lamb (of God) chops, augratin potatoes, green beans almondine and applesauce cake (Mrs. McCarthy’s recipe!). 

Regular shows are Dec 5, 6, 12, 13 at 7:30 pm and Dec 7 & 14 at 2:00 pm.

Coming Soon!

Auditions for “Showstoppers: Love – Are You IN or OUT?” will be at the Peru Depot on December 7th at  7PM.

  • Persons auditioning should come prepared to perform a song in that theme from either a Broadway Show, or a Musical Movie. Dancers   auditioning should bring tap or jazz shoes and comfortable clothes. Musicians, bring instruments.
  • The singing auditions will be first—these decide the singers’ ranges . The musical instruments will be next. Those who have talents other than singing or musical instruments will be next, and dance will be last. The final music list will not be announced until the show is cast.
  • We will not be using young children for this show. It is an adult theme and an adult show.
  • Ages 16 and above only. Men SHOULD audition! We like big casts.
