My husband and I and another couple went to see the performance of "the Tempest." It was beautifully done. This is a small black-box-type theater. We have been there before and have enjoyed other productions. Good entertainment at a reasonable price.

Nice to be able to see young theater perform at a very reasonable price. I miss the local theaters of yester years and Valparaiso has two.

I have been the quite a few plays at the Chicago street theatre. Great place to see a show. The seats are comfortable. There is plenty of leg room. Highly recommend.

My husband and Isaw Young Dr. Frankenstein and it was great. We are going back to see the Christmas show and hope it is just as good. Very talented cast.

We saw the production of Cobb and we quite enjoyed it. Taking in to account the size and locality of the operation, the acting was good. It's a small theatre so almost any seat in the house is good. We sat in the second row and were quite happy, although a little more leg room would be nice. All in... More

Chicago Street Theatre is a real gem. I've attended several performances there and each was a very professional, five-star production. The theatre is tiny, so seating is very limited. Make your reservations early. The first few rows of seats are so close to the stage, you almost feel as though you're a part of the production! The actors are superb... More

As far as local theater goes CST has got it down, the people are more than welcoming and professional, the shows I have seen have all been outstanding, but most of all the classes for the kids are fantastic!
