Chicago Children’s Theatre is committed to training the next generation of actors and performers. Our Education opportunities strive to reflect the integrity and quality of our mainstage work, so children receive the same skills in our training that is needed by the fabulous performers in our productions. Students can see performances and understand how they could accomplish those achievements, as well as more fully appreciate the invaluable experience of becoming a theatre goer and admirer of storytelling on stage.

As we enter our second full year in our new home, The Station, we continue to learn, evolve, and experiment with our education offerings. But most importantly, we continue to listen to YOU.
