Chicago Playworks for Families and Young Audiences is the oldest continually producing children’s theatre in the Midwest. Founded as the Goodman Children's Theatre in 1925 and recognized as a pioneer of theatre for families, Chicago Playworks welcomes more than 30,000 students and families to our highly celebrated productions each season. Today we are dedicated to reflecting our audience's experience in an urban, contemporary, and multi-ethnic environment.
