Dear friends and members of Music on Stage:

As 2022 comes to a close, Music On Stage has reflected on both the successes and struggles we faced this fall. We lost our Artistic Director and dear friend, Frank Roberts. As a team, it took countless people to fill one man’s shoes. To ensure quality productions would be put on at Cutting Hall, we overextended ourselves, but not without reward; White Christmas and 42nd Street played to sold out houses, received accolades, and standing ovations.

At this time, the Music On Stage Board of Directors has chosen to end the current season with White Christmas and save the rest of our season, Drowsy Chaperone and The Wizard of Oz for future seasons. If you purchased tickets to Drowsy Chaperone, the Cutting Hall Box Office will contact you to issue refunds. Expect that processing could take 6-8 weeks.


The Board will continue to work collaboratively on restructuring and rebuilding Music On Stage and return in the 2023-24 season with a clear vision and plan. Thank you to everyone who volunteered to keep Music on Stage alive during a tragic transition and supported the arts.

The Board of Directors
Music On Stage, Inc.

The best of Broadway,

in Palatine!
