Celebrate the Grand Reopening of the Vittum Theater with ASC!
The West Town Chamber, Wicker Park/Bucktown Chamber and Adventure Stage Chicago will host a FREE celebration of the refurbished Vittum Theater on Saturday, February 15th. On November 15th, the Vittum Theater flooded due to a sprinkler system failure causing thousands of dollars in damage and displacing both Adventure Stage and Northwestern Settlement staff. Since then, ASC has received so much support from our community and we are eager to celebrate our return to the theater. Festivities will include tours of the newly renovated offices and theater, a ribbon cutting of the stage, a staged reading of Carlos Murillo’s I Come From Arizona, and a toast to the future. Activities, tours and celebrations from 2:30-3:30pm. The ribbon cutting will take place at 3:45 directly followed by the staged reading at 4pm.
Saturday, November 2nd ASC and the Northwestern Settlement will be hosting a Día de los Muertos Celebration! The celebrations will begin at 10 am with food and family friendly activities in Burnside Hall at the Northwestern Settlement. Attendees can also partake in a special raffle run by the Settlement. Directly after, at 11:30 am, there will be a free performance of La Ofrenda written by José Casas and directed by Ana Velazquez. Tickets for ASC’s Día de los Muertos Celebration are limited to 100 on November 2nd and must be reserved online. While tickets are free, patrons are subject to $3.50 fee per ticket. We hope to see you there!

ASC is extremely proud and excited to announce the titles for our upcoming season dedicated to the theme of Shelter. We begin our exploration of Shelter in the fall with José Casas’ coming-of-age tale, La Ofrenda (October 23 – November 22). Then, in the spring, Shelter is brought from the page onto the stage with Ghost by Idris Goodwin, adapted from the award winning novel by Jason Reynolds (April 15 – May 14).
