More than Theater, It’s an Experience!
Oil Lamp Theater was originally founded in February 2005 as a by-invitation-only theater group. The Theater was dedicated to the preservation of a traditional theater experience in unique and original venues. Keith Gerth, Former Executive and Artistic Director, staged 20 productions for up to 35 friends and guests each night in his home, a condo in Lakeview. In March 2012, Oil Lamp Theater was incorporated as a not-for-profit theater and has established its new location in downtown Glenview. The new venue provides seating for 60 guests. As of November 2021, Oil Lamp Theater is no longer BYOB, instead providing beer and wine for purchase before and during intermission of its performances.
