The Mary Fluhrer-Nighswander Theatre serves as a home for various performances, recitals, parties, and other events throughout the year.

The Bucktown Revue
One of our current regular guests is the Bucktown Revue. Bucktown is a live, on-stage radio show in the vein of "A Prairie Home Companion", which features local musicians, poets, storytellers, and more. The Barley House Band is the Bucktown Revue's house band, serving up traditional Irish and Scottish music flavored with influences from the Midwestern heartland.

Barley House Band

In the course of any show, you're likely to hear a wide variety of music, from The Barley House Band's folk tunes to hammered dulcimer to barbershop quartet. Add to that a comic sketch or two, and host Scott Tunnicliff's simultaneously humorous, heart-warming, and engaging monologues, and you've got The Bucktown Revue.

The Bucktown Revue plays the Nighswander Theatre on the third Friday of each month, September through May. To get more information, see more photos, listen to a show, or buy tickets, visit their website: LINK HERE.
