School Groups

Every year, Adventure Stage Chicago produces a season of mainstage productions recommended for young people ages 9-14. These performances are open to the public on weekends, and during the week we perform for large school audiences. During our last season alone, over 6,000 students from Chicago-area schools visited our space.


Weekday matinees begin promptly at 10:30 a.m., run approximately 90 minutes, and conclude with a 15-minute post-show discussion with the actors. Each preparing teacher receives a free online Learning Guide. This educator’s text includes themes, questions, vocabulary, classroom activities, recommended resources, and an introduction to our space, cast, and production team. These productions are recommended for intermediate and upper elementary grades.


Tickets are $8.00 per student.
One complimentary chaperone ticket for every ten student tickets purchased.

Preview tickets are $7.00.

“This was an amazing experience.
It was so wonderful for students to be exposed to the theatre and take them out of their realities to open their minds and hearts.”
