There are performances Friday and Saturday night at 7:30 PM and on Sunday at 2:30 PM. All of the shows will be in the Corson Playhouse. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased here.

The Corson Playhouse began as a social hub of Brandon Township. It served as a dance hall, community center and polling place as far back as 1928. It was renovated with new seats and an extended lobby in 2012. It now seats 100 people.
