In tandem with celebrating forty years of producing off-loop theater, Stage 773,1225 W Belmont, Chicago, is excited to announce their upcoming contributions to the Chicago theater community, and welcome home many in the Chicago arts industry with The Homecoming Campaign, running from September to December 2017.
“This campaign is more than just about fundraising to us,” says Jill Valentine, Director of Theater Management at Stage 773. “The Homecoming Campaign has been created to act as a means for alumni and fans of Stage 773 to gather and support the common goal of continuing to build a home away from home for the Chicago art community.”
This three-event celebration and community fundraising with a $40,000 dollar-for-dollar matching program will assist the nonprofit Chicago based venue, in their mission of building a strong infrastructure for all artists to create new work and grow as successful members of the arts community. The funds will directly benefit the renovation of their largest theater- converting the space into a flex space where all artistic companies can move the set and seats into any configuration. This will enable a vast amount of freedom and choices to companies to create beyond a fixed stage. The theater will also become the first flex space available to rent in Chicago.
To continue the spirit of the homecoming weekend, the Young Professional Board of Stage 773 will celebrate on Saturday October 7, with a High School themed Homecoming Pub Crawl. This event will start at Stage 773 at 5 p.m., venture down Belmont Ave. and be the only pub crawl in the city that expands into Boystown; ending with an after party and prizes at Stage 773. Homecoming Pub Crawl tickets can be purchased for $20 online and $25 at the door.
