Drums and DJs. Monsters and mysteries. Victory. A legion of young heroes battles villains, saves the underdog, and once again makes dreams come true as Adventure Stage Chicago revives its electrifying 2012 production before embarking on its first-ever national tour. Influenced by comic books, video games, hip hop, urban mythology, and Latino folklore, this collection of vignettes celebrates youth as everyday heroes taking us on a thrilling, heartfelt journey. Scroll down for photos!

Written by Marco Ramirez and directed by ASC Producing Artistic Director Tom Arvetis, SIX STORIES TALL includes performances in Chicago (March 21 - April 29), the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis, TN (March 29 - 31), and The Performing Arts Center at Purchase College in New York (May 5).

Six Stories Tall features Christopher Acevedo (Ensemble), Danielle Davis (Ensemble), Mikhail Fiksel (DJ, Original Music & Sound Design), Jeffery Freelon (Ensemble), Alyssa Vera Ramos (Ensemble), Nelson Rodriguez (Ensemble), and DJ LMS (DJ Swing - Tour), with BranDon Campbell (Production Stage Manager), Liviu Pasare (Projection Design), Stephanie Paul (Choreographer), Jessica Kuehnau Wardell (Costume Design), and Brandon Wardell (Scenic, Lighting, and Properties Design).

As the participatory arts program of Northwestern Settlement, ASC productions feature multiple options for audience engagement. Each performance is framed by a Curtain Conversation, asking audiences to keep a question in mind as they watch the play and return to it after the show; our lobby transforms into an interactive installation; and Learning Guides are available for teachers and parents, including show context and arts-integrated activities.

All Chicago performances take place at Northwestern Settlement's Vittum Theater, 1012 N. Noble St. Tickets are $17 for adults and $12 for youth aged 14 years and younger. Group tickets are $10 for ten or more guests. Student matinee tickets are $7 for CPS and $8 for non-CPS groups.
