PM&L Theatre

Palette, Masque and Lyre Inc (PM&L Theatre) has been a staple of entertainment in downtown Antioch for six decades. Formed in 1960, our community theatre has grown from its humble beginnings in a converted vaudeville venue to a modern facility built to delight our audiences of all ages. PM&L runs a full season of plays, musicals and comedies each year drawn from our rich tradition while always introducing fresh contemporary and modern shows. In 2015 we acquired the building next door in order to convert it to Tribute Hall, a fresh new lounge and concessions area. We're proud to be part of the Antioch and Lake County community and invite you to visit and see the enjoyment of live entertainment for yourself. Listed hours are for our box office only, performances are on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
