Chicago Children's Theatre sincerely hopes that the Chicago Teachers Union and the City of Chicago reach an agreement as soon as possible.

However, with a strike imminent, Chicago Children's Theatre is ready to provide a safe and creative place for a limited number of CPS students.

If a strike takes place, Chicago Children's Theatre will offer a day-by-day Drama Day Camp for Grades K-5 until CPS resumes classes.

During camp, students will take a variety of classes exploring acting, singing, puppet making and performance, choreography, design and collaborative storytelling. Each day will be different to keep children engaged.

Camp hours are Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Before care is available starting at 8 a.m. Aftercare is from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuition is $75 per day, including before and aftercare. Financial aid is also available.
