Theater On The Lake

As a part of the Night Out in the Parks programming community, we have seen the impact of neighborhood based performance and are looking for ways to support artists in our communities.

This week, we'll be featuring our extra-ordinary 2020 Theater on the Lake: The Chicago Summer Theater Festival lineup of fresh new voices from the Chicago theatre scene whose excellent productions we were working to remount. All of these shows embody what is truly special about Chicago’s storefront theatre community—the chance to tell our stories, ourselves.

Many of these companies are still finding ways to be vital parts of our civic fabric. We encourage you to engage with them as they transition their work in this new future. Please consider contributing and supporting the return of these companies when it is safe for all of us to gather again.
