[usual] Suspects mission is to challenge, strengthen, and inspire our audiences, ourselves and our community.

Formed in 2015, [usual] Suspects premiered with The Rocky Horror Show in the J.R. Sullivan Theater at the Rockford Public Library’s Nordlof Center. Following the success of that production the company moved forward with a full season of works for 2015-2016. In 2019 we completed our fourth season, as artists in residence at the Rockford Public Library’s Nordlof Center. 2020 brings the company to a new location, at Keith Country Day School.
