next production.

Indian Valley Theatre is a community theater troupe serving the entire Fox Valley area from our headquarters in the Sandwich Opera House. Formed in 1983, Indian Valley Theatre members today provide quality, family-oriented plays, musicals and children’s theater productions featuring local and regional talent. Our door is always open to new members, no matter their experience level.

For the past 20 plus years Indian Valley Theatre has produced an annual favorite “melodrama” performed during the Sandwich Fair.

As the resident theater company of the Sandwich Opera House, Indian Valley Theatre members are proud to share in the maintenance and preservation of this local treasure, as well as perform on its stage.

Three shows a year are scheduled in the Opera House, with one at least providing opportunity for children to experience the wonder of the performing arts. A children’s workshop is typically scheduled in the spring. In addition, IVT is proud to offer the annual “The Mimi Bryan memorial IVT Scholarship” to area graduating seniors.

Come try out for our next production— we’d love to share all that Indian Valley Theatre has to offer! Of course, purchase tickets for our next show or take an annual subscription to make sure you don’t miss any.

Can Christmas be rented? Can it be ordered like take out? 
IVT sets Christmas production “The Rented Christmas” December 9, 10 and 11.

What is a Full Family Christmas Experience worth? In the end, more than money could buy. Experience the Christmas Spirit complete with tree, food, “family”,  gifts and Christmas carols joyfully portrayed by your friends and neighbors during “The Rented Christmas”. 
Once again, as in the past 38 years, Indian Valley Theatre brings a Christmas Story to life; poignant with suspense, heart-warming in its telling and timeless in its universal message of sharing. 
Its three days before Christmas, and a lonely man, John Dale (Jacob Roller) decides he can buy what he doesn’t have – a family. In fact  an old-fashioned family Christmas. And its up to Anne Weston (Kari Franzen) to figure out a way to fulfill her contract to rent it to him!
Her first plan fails so she reverts to contacting the local orphanage, and the results will warm your heart. 
Reserve your seat now for Indian Valley Theatre’s 2022 Christmas production, “The Rented Christmas” December 9 thru 11 at the Sandwich Opera House.
