Summer Theatre in the Quad Cities

The Quad Cities offer a wide variety of theatre shows during Summer 2017 from Shakespeare to Disney and from the West Side to the Rock of Ages. You can applaud your way through the summer months out under the stars or inside under the lights. The venues and prices vary, but the history and creativity are certain!

The Quad City Theatre Worship is busy practicing. Peter and the Starcatcher is fun for all ages. Ticket prices are based on what you think the performance was worth. You pay after the show!
