Local Events Community Events hosted at the EPC

Arts Connection of Central Illinois has been established for the citizens of Effingham County and beyond to showcase arts and entertainment, to encourage interaction with and appreciation of live performance, to endorse the educational process and to enhance the quality of life and cultural vitality of the region. To support our mission, in addition to our season events we also offer a wide variety of local events and educational performances. There is something for everyone to enjoy at the Effingham Performance Center. In the interest of arts education, we also provide our Summer Theater Camp for students, a unique learning opportunity teaching a variety of performance and communication skills. For the highest quality arts and entertainment experiences in Central Illinois, look to the EPC.
