40 for 40 Fundraiser!  Help us raise $40,000 for our 40th Anniversary!

The 40th Anniversary Celebration - 40 for 40 is now open. The fundraiser will run from October 11, 2019 to July 19, 2020. All proceeds go to City Lit in order to support 40 more years of unique and exciting theatre. Prizes include hotel stays and theatre tickets in Chicago and regionally to some amazing theatres!

We are selling raffle tickets during each show of our season and on closing night will draw a winner of that show’s prize.  For HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES we are offering a one night stay in a downtown Chicago hotel and tickets to see a fabulous show at Chicago Shakespeare Theater.


Order your raffle tickets now.  One for $10 and three for $25!  

We are also selling commemorative 40th Anniversary Season posters.  You may have seen our Fantastic Four-inspired illustration that includes the season's playwrights rendered into superheroes by Eisner Award-winning comicbook artist Gene Ha.  Now own your own copy forever!

 So, tell your friends, family, community.
