Daytime Drama Workshops
We at Lookingglass sincerely hope that CPS & CTU are able to resolve their differences without a strike. In the event that a strike does occur, however, we realize that Lookingglass has long been a resource that provides quality arts-based alternatives for students, given our history of partnering with schools and non-profit organizations to provide residencies and after-school programs, in addition to our well-known classes and camp programs. In the event of a strike, Lookingglass is prepared to offer day-to-day drama workshops for students ages 5 to 13.

SPACE STILL AVAILABLE IN ALL WORKSHOP DAYS!
For more information, please feel free to call our office at 773-477-9257 x193, or check out our FAQâ€™s below:
Where will the program take place?
Drama workshops will take place in our classroom and rehearsal room, located in Lookingglassâ€™ administrative offices at the John Hancock Building downtown (875 N. Michigan Ave).
What are the hours and details of your program?
Our program will be based on two of our popular summer camp programs, Arts Quest and Summergglass. Kids from ages 5-8 will engage in arts exploration activities, including storytelling, music, and art. Kids from ages 9-13 will engage in theatre activities, including physical theatre. Drop off will take place 8:40-9am, and pick up will take place 3:00-3:15pm; drop off and pick up will take place at the Chestnut Street entrance to the John Hancock building. The drama workshop will cost $65 per day.
Will you offer early morning care, or after-care?
Unfortunately, because of space limitations, we will not be able to offer early or late care.
How will registration work?
Registration will occur online, via this link. Because we are limited in terms of the number of students we can enroll, registration will be available on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in signing up for multiple days, you may do so one week at a time (hopefully, if a strike occurs, its duration will not be that long!).
Is there any other paperwork we need to fill out?
If you participated in one of our Summer Camp 2012 programs, we should have your Authorization and Health History Forms on file. However, if you did not participate in this summerâ€™s programs, you will need to fill out paperwork before dropping your child off on Monday.
Will you charge my payment right away? What if the strike is called off? Will there be a final performance?
This is an unusual, uncertain and very fluid situation and we are still finalizing details. If there is a strike, we would run payments on a day-to-day basis, so that you only pay for programs that your child participates in. For example, if you pre-register for three days of workshops, but the strike ends after the first day, you would only be charged for one day. Since we donâ€™t know how long a strike would last, and since we anticipate the possibility of having a different group of students each day, we will be focusing on exploring the arts, and we will not be focusing on working toward a final performance (like we do in summer camp).
Do you have any discounts or financial aid?
Because of the uncertain nature of this program, in order to make sure we can cover our costs and pay our teaching artist staff, we are not able to offer discounts or financial aid at this time.
Ages: 5 - 13 years
