Explore the world around you in our Summer Arts Quest Camp! Campers delve into the theatre arts through daily classes in storytelling, music, and art at the Menomonee Club in Lincoln Park. Weâ€™ll explore Chicagoâ€™s most exciting cultural icons during our field trips, and we also will be visited each session by a special guest artist. When weâ€™re not out and about in the city, weâ€™ll use dedicated rehearsal time to create an original piece of theatre, which weâ€™ll perform live on stage at the end of the session!
Program Updates for Summer 2013: Due to the changes in the CPS calendar, we have decided to offer a fifth session of camp! Please see below for details -- we hope that our new calendar offers everyone the flexibility to fit everything into the summer! Finally, due to the Lookingglass Main Stage performance calendar, Session I will be performing on the MCA stage!
