Adventure Stage Chicago (ASC) creates and tells heroic stories about and for young people. We do this to engage our community and inspire all of us to be heroes in our own lives.
As the participatory arts program of the Northwestern Settlement, ASC delivers a high quality theatre experience while integrating artistic practice into the fabric and delivery of social services.
ASC works to build community through art with our dedicated Community Engagement programs such as Community Crossroads, Neighborhood Bridges, and Trailblazers Summer Camp.
We are dedicated to serving the youth of Chicago through the performing arts, giving young people the tools to tell and take agency over their own stories. We are the only Theatre in the Chicago area that caters specifically to young adults.
At the theater, Adventure Stage Chicago offers more than just a show – it’s a reflective and growing experience for all.
We offer a creative adventure from the moment our patrons enter the building with our interactive lobby displays and activities, throughout the show with our opening discussion question, and even after the applause with our Curtain Conversation.
ASC engages our patrons to become active participants in both the theater and the world around them.
