Tim Fink and Mark Varns of the SIUC Theater Department give Jak Tichenor a preview of the outstanding lineup of professional entertainers, actors, singers, and musicians coming to the McLeod Theater for this year’s Summer Playhouse Series. The McLeod Summer Playhouse dates back to the 1970s when it was a joint production of the Theater Department and the School of Music. This year’s event kicks off on May 16 with the popular Singing With the Stars evening showcasing talented local performers (hint: last year SIU President Glenn Poshard appeared as Elvis!). This year’s schedule will also feature Always, Patsy Cline; Almost Maine; The Producers; and Little Women: The All Southern Illinois High School Show.
