Founded in 2018, the Passage Theatre (TPT) is an emerging not-for-profit theatre company based in Chicago. 

There are a lot of expenses that go into live performance (venue rental, design elements, insurance, administrative overhead, etc.), but at TPT, our number one priority is our collaborators. This is reflected not only in how we treat the artists who work with us, but also in our budget--by far the largest line item in our budget for the past two years has been artist stipends.

By contributing, you will help us support Chicago theatre artists, create a more equitable and accessible artistic community, and keep producing astonishing live performances.

The Passage Theatre is a 501(c)3 organization and any contribution is tax-deductible under federal and state law.


We understand the pandemic has brought on financial struggle for many people, especially artists and other independent contractors. If you are looking for other ways you can support TPT beyond the financial, here are some ideas!
