Support ASC

Did you know that the majority of Chicago Public School children who attend our performances pay out of pocket because their school has little to no budget for participatory arts experiences?

For just $7, you can inspire a student to dream big by buying their ticket to an ASC performance. We work with schools all across Chicagoland, telling heroic stories that motivate students to become heroes in their own lives. By donating to Adventure Stage, you can sponsor a classroom and ensure that more students feel empowered to be their best selves.

Help us tell heroic tales!
Donate today to support our efforts in empowering youth through original productions, drama instruction, and youth mentorship.
