Presented by the League of Chicago Theatres in partnership with Choose Chicago, Chicago Theatre Week (CTW) is the celebration of the rich tradition of theatre-going in Chicago. The ninth annual Chicago Theatre Week took place February 25 – March 7 in a reimagined digital format due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Members of the League of Chicago Theatres and those performing at member venues are eligible to participate by offering tickets at price points of $30 or $15 (or less than $15). We ask that you offer a minimum of 10 tickets to each performance. Theatre Week purchases are completed through your own ticketing system/box office, but the ticket offer details will all be listed on the Chicago Theatre Week website.
Leading up to and during Theatre Week, all participating theatres are required to promote the event through 4 channels: social, website, email, and on-site. We also encourage theatres to offer special events, including enrichment activities such as talk backs with artists and added-value activities such as drink specials and restaurant discounts.
The goals of CTW are to expand the visibility of theatre as a vital industry throughout Chicago and celebrate Chicago theatre by offering patrons special incentives. In 2020, during our last in-person Chicago Theatre Week, 134 different shows participated. Over 13,500 value-priced Theatre Week tickets were sold and, with the help of member theatres sending out e-blasts and posting on social media, we had a digital reach of 3 million. In 2021, our reimagined online Chicago Theatre Week allowed 113 theatres to promote online programming and receive donations to support their recovery during the pandemic.
Dates for our celebratory tenth annual Chicago Theatre Week 2022 have not been announced. For more information about participating in Chicago Theatre Week, email Hayley Ross.
