Attending A Show Information

Corn Stock Theatre is located at 1700 N Park Road, Peoria, IL 61604, near the intersection of Park Road and Nebraska Ave.


Parking is available in our lighted parking lot, located directly across from the Tent.  Additional parking is located on the interior road inside the park, and on Park Road, just outside the park.

Please do not park in the fire lane at the Tent, or the circle drive at the Theatre Center. We need to keep the fire lane clear for emergency vehicles if necessary.


Theatre Center: The entrance are the main double-doors on the east side of the building. The Theatre Center is about 50 yards south of the Tent in upper Bradley Park. Whether you have a Will-Call or Walk-Up ticket, please check in at the Box Office counter to check in or purchase your ticket before entering the theatre. Lobby doors open one hour before the show.

Tent: You must first check in at the Box Office for your Will-Call Ticket or Walk-Up Ticket, and then proceed to any ramp where an Usher will help you to your seat(s). If you are a Season Pass Holder and have received your tickets in the mail previous to show night, you may take your ticket to an Usher who will guide you to your seat(s). Seating begins between 6:30pm and 7:00pm each night at the Tent.


Wheelchairs: Handicap accessible parking is available. There are a limited number of spaces for wheelchair accommodations in our theatre at the Tent and Winter Lab. Please advise the Box Office staff of your accessible seating needs when ordering tickets, or when ordering online.

Assisted Listening Devices: Corn Stock Theatre offers assisted listening devices for patrons to better hear and understand the dialogue and music for all of our productions. Patrons are loaned a small receiver, about the size of a transistor radio or a mic pack, and an earpiece. A transmitter works through the theater’s sound board to deliver the actors’ voices to the patron’s ear, bypassing background noises and other interference. A driver’s license or other ID is required to check out a listening device, and is returned to the Patron when the receiver is returned to the Box Office at the end of the show. Please inform the Box Office when you arrive if you’d like to use the assisted listening device.

Cell Phones – Please turn OFF all cell phones, beepers/pagers and alarms on watches upon entering the house for performances. Cell phones may interfere with our sound system and headset communications, even if in the silent or vibrate mode.

Smoking – Corn Stock Theatre is a smoke-free facility.

Late seating – Corn Stock Summer productions start at 7:30 pm. Winter Lab productions begin at 7:30pm and at 2:30pm for matinees. Please allow enough time to arrive at the theatre early. Late seating is at the discretion of the House Manager, Box Office Manager or Theatre Manager, subject to available seating. You may be asked to wait for an appropriate interval before being seated and alternative seats may be offered to minimize disruption of performances already in progress. At the discretion of the Box Office Manager, vacant seats may be reassigned as upgrades or offered to patrons on a standby list, unless you notified the box office stating that you will be arriving late.

Children – If you bring a child, make sure that theatre etiquette is a part of the experience. Kids love to learn new things. They are our future members and lovers of the theatre. We welcome them for all age-appropriate performances. Due to Fire Marshal regulations, a seat must be purchased for anyone entering the theatre regardless of their age.

Inclement weather – Corn Stock Theatre presents shows – rain or shine. In case of extremely severe weather, the CST management will determine the best course of action on a case by case basis.
