In addition, our proximity to Chicago and the fact that many company members (both current and former) are active in the Chicago area as actors, directors, writers, and producers, can be advantageous to those wanting to become established in the theatre community there. Furthermore, if you are looking to play a variety of roles and expand your resume, our season of productions will offer you that opportunity.
