In the News: Chicago's small theaters strengthened with critical general operating grants


“These storefront [theaters] are fundamental to who we are as humans. They are critical resources in our neighborhoods. They help us talk about the issues of the day — immigration, gender, racism — in a way that other art forms can’t. They wear their hearts on their sleeves. We need them." - David Farren, Executive Director, Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation in The Chicago Sun-Times - September 3, 2019



Today's Chicago Sun-Times highlights the importance of our region's small theaters and why we make multi-year, general operating grants.

Annually, we award a half million dollars in general operating grants to Chicago's small theaters, including those mentioned in the article - Rivendell Theatre Ensemble, Theatre Y, Babes With Blades, Silk Road Rising, A Red Orchid Theatre, Akvavit Theatre, Shattered Globe Theatre Company.
