Madison, across from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum, from Sunday, June 23 through Friday, July 12, 2013. The exhibit will be available for viewing daily from 9 AM to 5 PM, except July 12 when it closes at 4 PM. This visual arts program gives employees of participating businesses, agencies and institutions an opportunity to share their creative talents through artwork completed outside working hours. The artwork was first exhibited at the participating workplaces where the paintings, drawings, photography, fiber art, and other art mediums were judged by a panel of specialists. Over 275 pieces of art were included in the In-House Exhibits held in May. Eighty-one (81) first-place artworks qualified for the City-wide Exhibit. This artwork is judged again and awards presented for the City-wide Exhibit. Participating companies, businesses, institutions, and agencies include the following: American General Life Companies, Bunn-O-Matic, Lincoln Land Community College, Southern Illinois University-School of Medicine, Springfield Public School District 186, University of Illinois at Springfield, Illinois Commerce Commission, Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, Illinois State Board of Education, Illinois State Museum, Illinois State Police, and Illinois Departments of Agriculture, Human Services, and Public Health.
 
  8:00PM 10:30PM Sunset Boulevard the Musical   Roxy Theatricals presents the regional premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber's award winning Broadway musical Sunset Boulevard weaves a grand tale of faded glory and unfulfilled ambition. Discarded by tinsel town with the advent of "talkies," silent movie star Norma Desmond longs for a return to the big screen. Her glamour has faded in all but her mind. When she meets struggling screen-writed Joe Gillis in dramatic circumstances, their subsequent passionate and volatile relationship leads to an unforeseen and tragic conclusion.

  8:00PM 10:30PM Theater in the Park- The Crucible   This is a 1952 play by the American playwright Arthur Miller. When theatre is at its finest, it sheds light on the human condition, showing audiences both the very best and the very worst of what it means to be human. Arthur Miller's The Crucible gives us the broadest spectrum of this; the play is practically a naked bulb in a darkened room, baring ugliness and deprivation alongside the rare beauty of true faith and forgiveness. It speaks to two deplorable events at two different time periods in our American history: the Salem, Massachusetts witch trials of 1692, which is the setting of the play; and the communist McCarthy trials of the early 1950s, during which the play was written and of which the play serves as an allegory. But fundamentally, the characters and the emotional content of the play speak to any time period and any circumstance in which motivations are difficult to understand and in which it is wrongly perceived that *any* answer is better than *no* answer. All performances: $13 Adult, $11 Seniors, $8 Children (under 12). For reservations and to order, call 217-632-5440 or 1-800-710-9290. Box Office Hours : Monday through Saturday: 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Sundays: 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. http://www.theatreinthepark.net/index.html
