Be a part of a unique theatrical experience unlike anything else in Bloomington-Normal. Invite your friends over to your patio to celebrate and Nomad Theatre will provide the floor show.

The Patio Plays, directed by Alysa Chandler, is a site-specific 30-minute theatre experience where a troupe of actors travel to a variety of locations throughout the Bloomington-Normal community and perform monologues & scenes on patron's patios themed around... well, the patio. The plays are short and family friendly.

When purchasing your ticket, you will be able to pick the date and desired time frame you would like to reserve for a performance. Our performance schedule will be created in the order in which tickets are received. Please understand we may need to contact you to arrange an alternate performance date. We will arrange a troupe to perform for you between the available time frame listed.  You will be notified of your performance time in advance.  You will also be asked to describe the space in which actors will perform.  Any outdoor space that is at least 20 x 20 will work.  A back patio, driveway, front yard, deck .... we can adapt to your space.

We require your name, email and phone number to communicate with you about your performance details. Nomad Theatre Company does not share this information.
