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, 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 and is a BYOB establishment.  Oil Lamp Theater provides corkage and glasses at no charge and beverages can be enjoyed during the performance.
