Theatres should be driven by artists.

At the heart of Three Brothers is the belief that theatres should be driven by artists. We do this by striving to be a place of opportunity, a place where artists can experiment with their craft, and a place that serves as an artistic home for many artists under our roof. Our theatre is driven by an incredible ensemble of actors, directors, designers, and more.

Three Brothers Theatre is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in Waukegan, IL and as such we are governed by an incredible board of directors from many areas of our community.
