Recent Events

Peter and the Starcatcher

The Bradley University Theatre Department presents the Tony-Award-winning "prequel" to Peter Pan, a high-energy voyage of music, magic, and spellbinding theater. On a sea journey to the land of Rundoon, a fearless young girl joins forces with an orphan boy and his friends to protect a powerful secret from the dastardly (and very Hook-like) pirate, Black Stache. Singing mermaids, evil crustaceans, a ship called The Neverland, and a mysterious substance called Starstuff spark this acclaimed musical play, directed and choreographed by returning guest artist Chad Bradford.

We’ll enjoy dessert and an introduction to this production by Scott Kanoff, the Chair of the Theatre Department.

Tour of Peoria

See Grandview Drive, coined by President Teddy Roosevelt as “The World's Most Beautiful Drive,” learn how Peoria became the whiskey and earthmoving capital of the world, and enjoy getting to know many of the other most interesting locations in Peoria.

All students, including those not living on the Honors floors, are encouraged to attend any night.
