Adventure Stage Chicago creates dynamic and transformative theatre for young audiences that activates the imagination, inspires dialogue, and strengthens community among families, educators, and artists. Each Adventure Stage Chicago production is comprised of weekday matinees primarily for school groups, as well as weekend performances for the general public.
We begin every single performance by posing a question to the audience for them to consider as they watch the play. Every show concludes with a curtain conversation, during which we explore possible answers to the pre-show question and encourage the audience to ask anything they like of the cast. This dialogue helps children process the major themes of the play and serves as a starting point for ongoing family discussion long after leaving the theater.
"ASC always does a wonderful, colorful, entertaining and educating job with its productions. It manages to educate kids about theater without spoiling any of the magic."
