**We understand not everyone is comfortable being in a crowd without masks yet, so City Lit still requires masks for our Sunday matinee performances.  Masks are encouraged but no longer required for Friday, Saturday and our 2 Monday performances.  City Lit staff will continue to mask for all performances.  If you have already made a reservation and because of this information you'd like to switch performances, please let us know and we'd be happy to reschedule you.

It’s the night before the beginning of the Aztec empire’s new millennium, and the Chosen One – so named because he is to be sacrificed in order to make the sun rise next morning -  has run off with the Emperor’s daughter.  If he is not found, the sun will not rise and the world will end.  By the writer of the legendary Chicago musical comedy Summer Stock Murder.
