About Oil Lamp Theater

The goal of Oil Lamp Theater is to create an experience that “immerses” the guest completely into the performance. Upon arrival at the theater, each guest is personally greeted by the Artistic Director or a representative of the theater. The lobby space is decorated in a way that is warm and comforting with as many features of home as possible. The space is designed to encourage a relaxed atmosphere that promotes a gathering and conversation. The lobby space includes 70 tea lights that are lit each night. Freshly-baked cookies, snacks and soda are complimentary. The Theater is BYOB so guests are invited to bring a beverage to enjoy during the performance. Glasses and corkage are provided at no additional charge.

The 60-seat theater space itself is designed to be more home-like and welcoming than a black-box theater. The chairs are stand-alone padded chairs on simple risers that blend into the stage space with minimal barriers between. Guests are never farther than 25 feet from the stage. The Theater also continues its tradition of a post-show gathering of cast and guests to discuss the play and engage in conversation. All guests and cast are encouraged to participate. The theater, lobby and restrooms of the theater are all handicap accessible.

There are many nice restaurants in the vicinity from fine dining to fast casual. You can even pick something up across the street at Heinen's Market and dine in their cafe.

There is parking in front of the building as well as a public lot a stone's throw away. So, parking is not a concern.
