It seems unbelievable that this crackerjack professional theatre company which only began producing plays and musicals in Naperville back in 2011, is successfully completing its eighth season of quality entertainment.
Over the past seven years, BrightSide has been dynamic. Incredibly, the company has reinvented themselves. They’ve upped their game, nurtured and increased their season ticket base, wisely adding a fully-cast children’s production each season. With the new season on the horizon, another new addition to their already busy calendar has been announced: a fully staged version of another musical, presented in a concert hall setting, with full orchestral accompaniment. This is a theatre that’s always moving and changing, continually learning what works best and growing with the times.
