Producers' Guild

“Over the years, our productions have moved millions of people to the edge of their seats: to laugh, think, respond, reconsider, and grow. And we’re still growing.”
—Chase Levey, Founding Board Member, Producers’ Guild Liaison
“The Guild is a vibrant collection of young professionals committed to a thriving, world-class arts scene in Chicago. Along with its social angle—which includes sharing the Theater with friends and families and cultivating new CST fans—the Guild also offers a gateway into the full array of the CST activities. Whether you are passionate about acting, music or stage design; inspired by CST’s outreach to Chicago’s families and public schools; drawn to the amazing Shakespeare productions or offbeat WorldStage performances; or just committed to being a steward of one of the city’s great cultural institutions—the Guild allows you to be part of these things in uniquely intimate and enriching ways.”
—Andrew Levy, Current Producers’ Guild Member
