Professional Shows

Whether it's an exciting musical, an insightful drama or a comedy that will make you cry laughing, here at Stage Left we pride ourselves on providing the Dixon area with the best theatrical experience possible. We aim to create a high-quality adult night out, great for date nights, Girls Night Out or just because you deserve it!

First Class Beverage Service

Since Stage Left started we set out to provide a high-class night out, but one that made everyone feel relaxed and at home as well. And what better way to relax and watch the show but with your favorite beverage? The Crystal Cork has provided our patrons with exquisite cocktails, wines, beers and regular soft drinks. They've become an indispensable part of the Stage Left experience. Thank you, Eric & Judy Brantley and wonderful staff for making Stage Left an even better place to come relax and enjoy the arts!

Our seating is 'cabaret-style,' which means every party gets a table and chairs to themselves — so you can realx and enjoy our intimate setting. Everyone is within 25ft of the stage, meaning there isn't a "bad" seat in the house.  We even have high tops with new & extremely comfortable swivel seats available to those who prefer the back row but will want an excellent view of the action. Normally our space can seat ~60 patrons comfortably, but this can change depending on the layout and size of any given production.

Come see us for yourself!

We're located in beautiful downtown Dixon, on the left bank of the Rock River. Specifically, we're upstairs  (we have a chair-lift for anyone who needs assistance moving up large flights of stairs.) above Orom Restaurant and Rockin' Nutrition & Wellness. Right across the street from the downtown parking-lot.

If you're having trouble finding us, just give us a call. (we understand)
