Serving nearly 6,000 students a year, The Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University’s 2013/2014 Student Matinee Series starts on November 8, 2013 when Adventure Stage Chicago brings their production of Six Stories Tall: A Play About Monsters, Mermaids and Spray Paint to the theater’s mainstage.
The series continues with the annual performance of Too Hot to Handel: The Jazz-Gospel Messiah on January 17, 2014 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Students are then treated to a special performance of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater on February 28 before the season concludes with The Chicago High School for the Arts’ Carnival of Animals and Featured Showcase on April 11.
“Through our Student Matinee Series we aim to not only expose students to some of the best entertainment Chicago has to offer but to show them the importance of education through performance,” explains Director of Auditorium Theatre’s Department of Creative Engagement Christina Bourné. “Each student matinee offers a unique, educational experience that strives to engage students in a thought-provoking dialogue that can further their understanding of the community and themselves.”
All performances take place on the Auditorium Theatre’s Sollitt Stage at 50 E. Congress Parkway. Tickets range from $10 to $12 and are available by phone at 312-341-2357 and online at email@example.com.
