Plainfield District 202 High Schools’ Fall Plays Set To Take Center Stage

Plainfield – District 202’s four high school auditoriums will come alive in November as students take the stage for their annual slate of fall plays.

Here is this year’s lineup:

  • 7:30 p.m. Friday, November 18 and Saturday, November 19, 2022
  • 2 p.m., Saturday, November 19 and Sunday, November 20, 2022.

Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas.

Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself at Higbee’s Department Store.

The answer is always no because, “you’ll shoot your eye out!”

  • 7 p.m. Friday, November 4, Saturday, November 5
  • 2:30 p.m. Sunday, November 6, 2022

What would happen if the stuff of legends appeared in our contemporary society?

In these scenes, vampires, werewolves, zombies, elves, fairies and mermaids are at home in school hallways, on the beach, and in the suburbs.

The play also shows that teenage angst is universal and timeless.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for students, staff, senior citizens, veterans, active military, and children younger than 5.

Tickets will be sold at the door or call 815-439-5555.

“Little Women” revolves around the lives of four sisters and their transition from childhood to womanhood, as they face the challenges of life during the Civil War.

Together, they navigate the day to day with celebrations and heartaches. They learn patience, understanding, consequences and that love conquers all.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for students, staff, and seniors

Young orphan James Henry Trotter has no idea the adventure that awaits him when he encounters a magical peach.

Roald Dahl’s story comes hilariously to life in this delightful dramatization that reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others, and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with crises.

Tickets are $8 adults, $5 for staff and students, senior citizens, and children younger than 5.

Tickets will be available online at or at the door.

PEHS is at 12001 S. Naperville Road, Plainfield.
