Our Education Vision
The Education Department of Chicago Children’s Theatre aims to empower the next generation of performers, innovators, and collaborators. Through theatre education, we not only foster students’ artistic skills, but develop confident voices, encourage open-mindedness, and build community. Our programs are led by experienced teaching artists who are passionate about championing young people’s stories regardless of background. Our programs emphasize student authorship, youth empowerment, and community leadership.
If you have questions about our education programming for families please contact our Director of Education & Community Programs, Dexter Ellis, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling (312) 374-8828.
