“If you’re raising a star who’s destined for the stage, it’s time to embrace Chicago Children’s Theatre. Our youth-oriented company was founded in 2005, and we have since played shows for over 280,000 adoring fans.
Enjoy professional on stage productions and/or sign your budding thespians up for a drama class. Your little talents will learn theatrical and musical skills from some of the brightest names in the business. Since we work with equity actors, your kids’ teachers will be the same talented folks that you see on Chicago’s professional stages!
At Chicago Children’s Theatre we also offer extraordinary training for young actors through our Theatre Skills Training Studio. The littlest performers begin to explore drama through movement, play, and storytelling in TINY SPARKS (Ages 3.5 – 5) Older children get hands on experience creating their own stories through DREAM FACTORY (Ages 6-9 and 10-13).
We also teach classes for children with autism and Down syndrome, and hosts autistic-friendly and American Sign Language performances.
Just wait until your little actors find a community, professional coaching, and encouragement to express themselves. You’ll be seeing stars.”
