    Timber Lake Playhouse, the premier professional summer theatre of northwest Illinois, will host a Fall Festival featuring BrewFest on Saturday, September 25 from 12:00 (noon) to 6:00 pm.  The fest will include tastings of popular craft beers and wines, food, hay rides, and activities for the whole family.  BrewFest features the popular craft beers of Lena Brewery and other local breweries.


    Tickets $25 for adults and $10 for 3 – 20 year olds.  Included in the ticket price are tasting tickets for wine  and craft beer tasting, soda tickets, pumpkin carving, face painting, bag games, ladder hockey, hay rides, trail rides, and other games and activities.  There will also be food for purchase throughout the day. The menu for BrewFest includes hot dogs, hamburgers, hot panini sandwiches and other food options. 


    Heartache Tonight, the Eagles Tribute Band will be in concert that day at the theatre at 2:00 and 7:00.  The 7:00 concert is sold out, but there are still tickets to the 2:00 concert.


    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. 


    A Heartache Tonight concert is filled with moments designed to thrill classic rock fans: 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.”

    Close your eyes and you’ll swear you’re hearing the real thing.


    Opening September 30, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline will begin a two-week run at the playhouse. One of the all-time legends of country music, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline is a tribute to her spirit and a celebration of the music of her life. Patsy Cline will be portrayed by Broadway’s Felicia Finley. The show will also feature local favorite, Darren Mangler.


    Beginning on October 15, Timber Lake Terror, The Haunted Experience at Timber Lake will run Friday and Saturday nights in October.  The Experience includes the Trail of Terror, Fun House, Haunted House, and an Escape Room.  TLP will close out Haunted October on the 30th with their annual offering of The Rocky Horror Picture Show
