ON STAGE 2014-2015

We’re thrilled to share with you and your children Chicago Children’s Theatre 2017.2018 Season – our first full season in our new home, The Station at 100 S. Racine Ave.

This season promises to be moving, innovative, and truly adventurous, as we reaffirm our commitment to bringing young theatre goers of every age the very best in professional family theatre.

Scroll down to explore the programming we have planned for you in our intimate new Pritzker Family Studio Theatre. This season boasts three unique world premieres, all created by Chicago Children’s Theatre to excite and inspire your whole family.

Parents! Chicago Children’s Theatre just posted its Fall 2017 line-up of performing arts classes for newborns to young teens, which is clearly growing into one of the deepest, most diverse rosters of arts education offerings for kids anywhere in Chicago.

In addition to classes staffed by the company’s own professional teaching artists, Frank Maugeri, Chicago Children’s Theatre’s Community Programs Artistic Director, has forged smart new partnerships with Old Town School of Folk Music, Actor’s Gymnasium and The Happiness Club to grow the curriculum now being offered year-round at Chicago Children’s Theatre’s new home, The Station, 100 S. Racine Ave., conveniently located in the heart of Chicago’s West Loop.
