The Bengt Sjostrom Starlight Theatre

The Bengt Sjostrom Theatre is an outdoor community theater located on the Rock Valley College campus in Rockford, Illinois. It was constructed in 1983 and is dedicated to the memory of Bengt Sjostrom, builder and civic leader, who was the general contractor when the college buildings were constructed, from 1967 to 1971. Rock Valley College began remodeling the Bengt Sjostrom Starlight Theatre in 2001 with Studio Gang Architects. The design of the 135,000 sq ft theatre renovation maintains the tradition of open air performances at Rock Valley College while allowing the theatre company to extend its season in any weather.
