Event Description

The first act takes place shortly after an unspecified apocalyptic event. A group of survivors gather together and begin to attempt to recount the episode “Cape Feare” from the television show The Simpsons. The second act picks up with the same group seven years later, who have now formed a theatrical troupe that specializes in performing Simpsons episodes, with commercials and all. The final act is set 75 years in the future. The same episode of The Simpsons, now a familiar myth, has been reworked into a musical pageant, with the story, characters, and morals repurposed to fit the artistic and dramatic needs of a culture still reeling from destruction of civilization and the near-extinction of humanity decades earlier.

 Tickets for the performances are $17.00 for adults, $12 for students and seniors, and $14 for Illinois State faculty and staff. Tickets can be purchased at the College of Fine Arts Box Office, located in the Center for the Performing Arts, from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, or by calling (309) 438-2535. Tickets are also available through ticketmaster.com. Free parking is available in the School Street Parking deck for all performances.
