Timber Lake Playhouse Features Some Great Music in their Fall Lineup
Timber Lake Playhouse, the premier professional summer theatre of northwest Illinois, will program a full fall schedule as well as into the Christmas Season for 2021.
September 4 brings The Blooze Brothers Revue to TLP. For over a quarter of a century, the Blooze Brothers have been one of Chicagoland’s most in-demand show bands. This high-powered choreographed 12-piece show band covers Motown, R&B, Soul, current favorites and of course the music and crazy antics of the original Blues Brothers. TLP concert goers will remember their “sold out” concert in 2019. With a combination of two high-energy frontmen, some of Chicago's top musicians, and their 1974 Dodge Monaco Bloozemobile replica, the Blooze Brothers provide a musical experience that can't be beat!
The Buddy Holly Story opens September 9 for a two-week run. The Buddy Holly Story tells the true story of Buddy’s meteoric rise to fame, from the moment in 1957 when “that’ll be the day” hit the airwaves until his tragic death less than two years later on “the day the music died”. The show features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits.
The ever popular Heartache Tonight will perform their Eagles Tribute Concert on Saturday, September 25 at 7:00. From the powerful guitar duel in “Hotel California” to the shimmering harmonies of “Peaceful Easy Feeling” a Heartache Tonight show is a true Eagles concert experience featuring all the timeless classic songs from one of the greatest rock bands of all time. Experience the soaring a cappella harmonies of “Seven Bridges Road,” the snarling guitars of “Life In The Fast Lane,” the anthemic country rock of “Take It Easy,” and Don Henley’s beautifully evocative “Heart Of The Matter.” TLP will also celebrate Fall Fest featuring BeerFest on that day. Taste and test some of the best craft beer from around the area. There will be games, pumpkin decorating, barrel rides, food and more.
A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline will open at the Playhouse on September 30 and run through October 10.
