There is a parking garage located just off Ellis Avenue, on the east side of the street. You have to take a ticket to get in, and get a "paid" pass at the theatre - it's free.

If you don't live in Hyde Park, getting supper can be a little bit of a problem because you have to get to the area through rush hour traffic, resulting in a short window of time to eat before the show. There's nothing much around the theatre, so you have to eat somewhere else, then drive to the theatre.

Limited concession stand, no alcohol. Bring an umbrella if it's raining, because you have to get from the parking garage to the theatre in the open.

About the Ticket Supplier: Court Theatre

Since the Court's founding in 1955 at the University of Chicago, its work has been inspired by the belief that classic theatre illuminates the stories and themes that are timely and timeless. Each one of the theatre company's provocative productions has guided its artists and audiences on an exploration into the vast human consciousness, and has created a timeline that connects the present to the past. Theatre, and classic theatre in particular, gives us insight into the past, understanding of our present, and directs us toward our future.
