A popular donut empire recently opened its first Oakbrook Terrace location with some new amenities that have everyone talking. The new Stan’s Donuts & Coffee store—located near owner Rich Labriola’s very own Labriola Café in nearby Oak Brook—will be home to the franchise’s first drive-through window and will also feature a 16-seat outdoor patio. We can’t think of a more perfect addition for the summer season. Check it out yourself at 17W615 Butterfield Road, Unit A, Oakbrook Terrace, in Oak Brook or go online at stansdonuts.com.
Drury Lane Theatre’s much-anticipated Regional Premiere of Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical features two local actresses sharing the title role—Chicago resident Audrey Edwards and Warrenville native Natalie Galla. Based on the beloved novel, Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical tells the tale of a 5-year-old girl with exceptional talents. Facing a family that does not appreciate her and a headmistress who does not appreciate any child, bookworm Matilda befriends her teacher, Miss Honey, who appreciates Matilda’s extraordinary personality. Armed with her powers and wisdom beyond her years, Matilda is more than ready to end the mean Miss Trunchbull’s reign of terror. The show runs through June 23 at Drury Lane Theatre, 100 Drury Lane in Oakbrook Terrace, 630-530-0111, drurylanetheatre.com.
Walk Through Time
If you can’t get enough historic homes, save May 19 for an annual house walk in nearby Western Springs. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Western Springs Historical Society invites guests to come together to celebrate the village’s rich history and glean design and architectural inspiration. Featuring six homes in four distinct parts of the village, the biennial house walk raises funds for the work the historical society does to develop exhibits for the Ekdahl House and the Tower Museum, as well as provide programs and archival materials for residents. “The House Walk is a great way to give back to the community simply by attending, while also enjoying a day of design inspiration and fun,” says Julie Kemnitz, event co-chair.
