Theater on the Lake Summer Theater Festival

Theater on the Lake Summer Theater Festival

Welcome to Theater on the Lake: The Chicago Summer Theater Festival.  Celebrating 67 years of Chicago’s rich off-Loop theater community.

The Festival is thrilled to return to our recently renovated home at Theater on the Lake for the 2018 season.   In November 2013, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Superintendent Michael P. Kelly announced that the Chicago Park District would convert the historic Theater on the Lake building from a summer-only programming site to a year-round event facility. The thoughtfully restored building is now home to The Lakefront Restaurant, Theater on the Lake: The Chicago Summer Theater Festival, and a multitude of special events.

The 2019 season will be announced mid-May.

 



2019 Year of Chicago Theatre


In collaboration with the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and the League of Chicago Theatres, 2019 has been designated the Year of Chicago Theatre. In celebration of this initiative the Chicago Park District has committed to producing theater in every corner of the city, all 77 community areas and all 50 wards!  View a list of 2019 theater events in the parks.
