Much of what we do at the theater is connecting the community to
the arts and to each other, through shared experiences that invite celebration,
conversation and collaboration. In troubled or divisive times, we are possibly
one of the only places where people of different backgrounds, views, or
generations, may find common ground.
Collective legacy builds off
of partnership with others. It’s not about one person’s effort—but about how
the combined effort of many makes a big impact.
Our collective legacy is in uniting people through the arts.
We do this in so many ways, big and
small. We bring
families together for magical holiday memories at The Nutcracker. We bring
students together to celebrate the achievements of their fellow students, as
they perform in a Theatre and Performance Studies (T.A.P.S.) production. We
bring teachers and students together for live educational performances through
our Arts in Education series. This April we will be bringing the generations
together for a shared musical experience aimed at building understanding
through two oral musical traditions at The
Blues Hip Hop Experience.
people together is second nature for us, but we don’t do it alone. We need you—our
community—to help us stand as the place in the Chicago’s Southland where all
are welcome, and we have something for everyone.
