Northwestern Settlement: Adventure Stage Chicago Trailblazers


About this Opportunity

Adventure Stage Chicago’s Trailblazers ensemble is a FREE and unique mentoring program that places young people (9-16) with mentors who are professional theater artists. Student participants guide the program’s content with thoughtful assistance from their mentors. In addition to creating original performances throughout the year, Trailblazers go on field trips, stretch their creative muscles with exposure to different forms of theater, and learn to work collaboratively in a supportive environment.

Every summer, 25 Chicago youth (ages 9-16) will take part in Trailblazers Summer Camp.  They’ll learn to work as an ensemble with professional artist mentors to create an original theatre piece inspired by issues young people face every day.  Campers will premiere their original work with a performance at the Vittum Theater.

Good For: Children Under 16, People Over 16
Days: Friday, Monday, Saturday, Sunday, Thursday, Tuesday, Wednesday
