Theater, going and ushering
Where can I do this?
Are the costs to get started high or low?
Would I be doing this in a group, in a couple, or on my own?
Are there physical requirements that might make it difficult for me to participate?
Open to all
So what's it all about?
Chicago has so much theater going on and much of it is affordable!
If you don't know where to start and have that fear of sitting through bad theater, the reviews in the Chicago Reader are reliable. Block Club is a good source of local theater news including new companies starting or moving locations. Or find and support your neighborhood theater as a way of making a connection to your local community!
If you'd like to get involved and want to see plays for free, consider becoming a volunteer usher. You can either apply directly to your favorite theater or join the "Saints."
