Court’s Community Engagement programs build our community beyond our theatre walls to include schools and surrounding neighborhoods. These programs exemplify our commitment to curiosity and innovation by creating refreshing conversations between students, educators, neighbors, and artists to explore new perspectives of classical theatre.

Find out more about our programs:

Ron OJ Parson Spotlight Reading Series: Our mission is to introduce Chicagoans to plays by artists of color that are rarely produced.  All Spotlight Readings are free and open to the public.

Education Initiative: The Court Education Initiative (CEI) expands the organization’s mission into local learning communities. Through partnerships with South Side high schools, student matinee performances, and robust Learning Guides for every production, we enhance the link between the art on our stage and the innate curiosity of our audiences.

Community Partners Initiative (CPI): The CPI invites the leaders of civic, community, nonprofit, and faith-based organizations to join a new membership program to give even more of our neighbors on Chicago’s mid-south side the opportunity to see the work on Court Theatre’s stage.
Student Night University Partners Initiative (UPI): As the professional theatre of the University of Chicago, Court partners with the campus community in a myriad of ways; in addition to a robust discount ticket program for students, we offer special performances for campus constituents, alumni nights, affinity group programming, and more.
