Amidst recent suspension of group gatherings and, thus, live performances, many Belmont District Theaters have opted into providing digital, remote and streaming programming for patrons to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes.
See below for the full list of programming currently available online:
Countdown to Quarantine
Join our ‘Quaran Team’ in our effort to stay creative and stay alive.
A cast and crew of 9 people spent 10 days living in quarantine together in the theatre to creating a show while live-streaming the process to raise money to help pay staff, cover the costs of the project, and secure the future of the theatre. Check out the show they wrote, produced, and broadcast below!
The building might be closed, but the competitive spirit lives – virtually! Join us this weekend on Friday March 27th and Saturday March 28th at 7:30PM and 9:30PM for some abbreviated ComedySportz matches. We’ll still have two teams, we’ll still have a Ref and we’ll still have all the awesome games you love. Come check out this virtual new world and may the best team win. Seating is limited so we are using EventBrite to make sure we have enough “seats” for everyone. This is a free event for all, but we are also raising funds for our actors so feel free to donate!
ReCeSz is our daily kids show. Are your kids stir crazy from being trapped in the house? Do they need a 30 minute break to have fun, laugh, dance, jump and see other children? If you answered yes to any of those questions, congrats, you’ve done math. And we have a solution – ReCeSz. For now, you can attend ReCeSz by using our Zoom Theater link: https://zoom.us/j/117479756 if you want to participate, or if you just want to watch we stream on Facebook as well. If ReCeSz gets too popular, we’ll move to a sign up system! EVERY DAY AT 12PM.

Theater’s most famous disabled character comes to Theater Wit like you’ve never seen him before—in the vicious, no-holds barred brutal politics of high school. Richard, picked on because of his cerebral palsy (and his semi-creepy tendency to monologue), is determined to become class president.
But the road to power is never smooth, and Richard must decide: is it better to be loved or feared?
Join us for the Chicago premiere of Mike Lew’s devastatingly funny, sharply written new play about perception, disability and the lengths we’re willing to go to rise above our station in life.
Kill Move Paradise closed its theatrical performance run on March 12 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, due to the incredible cooperation of artist unions, Dramatists Play Service, and playwright James Ijames, we can now offer a limited number of opportunities to see the show from the comfort of your home, with a week to watch at a time convenient for you, by streaming a previously filmed performance, edited to provide close-ups and full coverage of the staging. If you are a TimeLine Subscriber, you can use your FlexPass admissions as usual for remote viewing. A limited number of remote viewing tickets are also available for the general public.
