We Are Out There

An imaginative, digital prologue to the upcoming musical It Came from Outer Space. Before the world premiere musical from writers Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair launches onstage next year, embark on an out-of-this-world adventure alongside an investigative reporter digging into the far-fetched extraterrestrial activity around the small town of Sand Rock—and uncover secrets (and new songs from the show) along the way.

Chicago Shakespeare is committed to making its performances accessible to all patrons. ASL Interpretation, Audio Description, and Closed Captioning services are available.
