Jedlicka Performing Arts Center

  • The Jedlicka Performing Arts Center is a professional, non-equity 346-seat theatre located just 12 minutes away from the Chicago Loop, on the campus of Morton College in Cicero, IL. The acclaimed theatre, now in its 34th year, produces six shows a season, sells nearly 10,000 tickets a year and is one of the busiest non-equity theatres in the Chicago area.

    Support from Morton College and its Board of Trustees has allowed the JPAC to grow and nurture enthusiasm for the arts in local students and community members. WGN Radio deemed the JPAC “…a cultural treasure.”

  • Coming Soon


    September 18 - October 3


    During a paralyzing drought in the West, we discover Lizzie whose father and two brothers are worried as much about her potential future as they are about their dying cattle. 

    Trying to overcome her plain persona, they try every conceivable scheme to marry her off, all to no avail. 

    The situation changes abruptly with the arrival of a stranger who claims he can make it rain, but his allure enchantingly captivates Lizzie as well.

    Performances include Friday and Saturday at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 3 PM throughout the run of the show.
