About Greenhouse Theater Center

Located in Chicago’s prominent Lincoln Park neighborhood, Greenhouse Theatre Center was the original home for such theater luminaries as the groundbreaking Body Politic Theater and Victory Gardens Theater.

This multi-stage artists’ space provides four stages, dressing and staging areas, as well as, office space for resident companies to grow. The Greenhouse’s in-house performing arts renters produce and present their own plays and seasons of theater, educational activities and alternative forms of entertainment which provide an environment lush in support, healthy levels of peer competition, communication and a place to make fundamental associations with other companies, their members and their patrons. The result of this “greenhouse effect” is the ability to, literally “grow” theater companies from the ground up in size of budget, membership, board affiliations, patronage, and audience attendance. The Greenhouse Theater Center’s residency program offers further benefits to resident theater companies by offering prime performance slots, rehearsal opportunities, supplementary marketing privileges, and fiscal savings in addition to the common benefits shared by all renters.

The Greenhouse Theater Center maintains its focus on being a community center, not only for the Lincoln Park neighborhood, but also for the larger community of Chicago and beyond. Providing warm and welcoming spaces for groups to meet, perform, communicate, and learn is central to our mission. All of the Greenhouse’s lobbies and performance spaces function in a variety of different ways and accommodate a number of different group sizes. As accessibility to the four stages is essential, the building meets ADA standards.

Parking on the street. Several restaurants within walking distance. We went to O'Malley's -- OK, but will pick differently next time.

Parking is free along parts of Webster and along Oz park. There is also free parking at the old Children's Hospital lot, but that can be a bit creepy for evening performances. Most of the neighborhood other than above requires a 143 parking pass
