Come to a Community Meeting

Want to join our efforts but not sure where to start? Come see what Acting Out is all about at one of our Community Meetings.  Our monthly meetings are the beating heart of our organization.  They may include calls to action about specific issues and/or policies or speakers from other groups looking to educate and engage activists about specific issues and/or polices.  It can also be a time to discuss the creation or performance of political works by any affiliated theaters or actors.

Acting Out serves as a hub for the creation, performance, and promotion of political theatre for our community. In addition to producing and co-producing theatrical works, we help provide a network of writers, production staff, performers, and theatre spaces to facilitate the creation and performances of works that offer commentary and critique on the times we live in. As performers, we are the storytellers and interpreters of our own culture and time. Acting Out helps preserve, promote, and cultivate political theatre within the Chicagoland area, while simultaneously connecting our community directly with groups advocating for policies we believe in and raising funds to assist and eliminate the very issues that plague our community.
