The Lookingglass Education and Community Consortium
Lookingglass was founded on the belief that theater can and should be a potent means of discovery, as well as a powerful tool for instigating personal and social change. Since Lookingglassâ€™ inception, Education and Community programs have remained a cornerstone of the theatreâ€™s mission to create vibrant new works for the stage that are exhilarating, inspirational and accessible to all.
Using similar techniques and processes to those used to develop work on the Lookingglass mainstage, Education and Community programs serve more than 15,000 Chicago area students, adults, at-risk populations and people with disabilities annually, and provide over over $50,000 in scholarships to its Young Ensemble, Studio classes, camps, and in-school programs.
The escalating costs of finding, nurturing, and employing teaching artists, along with an increase in low-income students eager to study with Lookingglass, compel the theatre to seek additional funding to support these vital programs.
Gifts commencing at $5,000 are recognized as part of the Lookingglass Education and Community Consortium. Membership includes an impressive roster of benefits, including:
- Invitations to private rehearsals of the Young Ensemble
- 4 tickets to each Education and Community production during the 2010-2011 Season at Lookingglass
- Sponsorship recognition in Playbill, and at Lookingglass Education Opening Performances
- 2 tickets to each Opening Night production in theÂ 2010-2011 Season at Lookingglass
