About Crowd Theater

The Crowd Theater is a 501(c)3 nonprofit performance venue in Chicago, IL created with the purpose of providing an affordable performance space for underrepresented artists as well as the tools and resources necessary to hone their craft. We strive towards diversity, inclusion, and affordability with the intention of creating a space that listens to and serves the community it seeks to represent.

With the goal of making our shows more affordable for our audiences, many of which are themselves performers, we set up this Patreon as an experiment to see if it is possible to shift the paradigm with how theaters approach ticket sales. At the base level, you get unlimited access to shows at our theater for just $5 a month. We hope this not only makes it more affordable for those who wish to see shows at our theater, but will also provide our theater with a consistent audience, making our shows more worthwhile for both performers and audience members.

For those of you who don't live in Chicago, feel free to donate, and should you ever find yourself in our city we would be more than happy to have you come see some shows at our theater. While we've been lucky enough to enjoy a reasonable level of success in our first year, any and all proceeds we receive will always go towards improving our theater and furthering our mission of diversity, inclusivity, and affordability.

If you have any questions or want to get in contact with us, please feel free to message us on Facebook or shoot us an email at [email protected]

All donations to the Crowd Theater are tax deductible.
