Welcome to Indian Valley Theatre.

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.


IVT sets fall play "Murder is a Game" performing at the Sandwich Opera House October 21 thru 23. 

Murder is a Game is a clever play surrounding Toby & Sloan Bigelow (Nick Bantz-Beaty & Jen Ketchum), two famous mystery writers. Their publisher, Lois Dunston (Christine Roe) has given them an anniversary gift to stay in a Mansion that was used for the movie: “Murder is a Game”.  


She arranges for a few “actors” to play parts of a murder plot to help get The Bigelows creative juices going to write another book.  

Nick Ranelli (Logan Graham), Stephen Leech (Darren Whaley), June Ripley (Brittany Watne), Cora Leech (Shelbbie Daugherty) and BB Mink (Megan Shupe)

These characters set up some great plot ideas for the Bigelows with many surprising twists and turns.  You think you know who they are, but maybe you don’t!  The play is not only one of mystery and surprises, but has some humor to keep you entertained.  
The play is directed by Chris Greenwood Williams.
Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased on the Indian Valley Theater website
