We’re still here!
The Playground Theater is helping artists produce shows around the city.

THE PLAYGROUND THEATER is a 501(c)3 nonprofit theater run entirely by artists, students, and volunteers. Like so many other theaters, we lost our space due to the pandemic. Now, we’re producing shows online and around the Chicago!

We are always looking for new artists, new supporters, and new ways to experience art and comedy.

SUPPORT: Our fundraising goal for 2022 is $100,000. The money we raise will go to artist and staff pay, youth & community outreach, and a new home sometime next year.

SAFETY: We are paying close attention to COVID developments and CDC guidelines and working closely with the venues we rent to produce shows. Proof of vaccination must be presented in order to attend any of our live shows.


The Playground Theater is supported by grants from the following organizations:
Chicago Community Trust
Paul M Angell Family Foundation
Business Interruption Grant (BIG)
