Theater on the Lake

Welcome to Theater on the Lake: The Chicago Summer Theater Festival.  Celebrating 65 years of Chicago’s rich off-Loop theater community.

Renovations are underway to convert the historic Theater on the Lake building from a summer-only programming site to a year-round program and event facility.  During renovations, Theater on the Lake’s 65th season will once again take the shows on the road to the Berger Park Cultural Center.
