Why you should plan a theater outing for your group

Brighton Beach MemoirsLive theater is a great choice for a memorable group event and Raven Theatre always seeks to offer dramatic productions that are entertaining and thought-provoking. We focus on modern drama that tells engaging stories about vivid characters – plays that will spark emotions and provide plenty to talk about on the way home.

The Chicago storefront theater experience

If your members have never seen live theater in the intimacy of a Chicago storefront theater, they’re in for a treat. No one in the audience at Raven is more than 23 feet from the stage, and our stage is big enough for elaborate sets the likes of which you usually only see at larger theaters. Seeing a play at Raven is like being in the first six rows of one of the downtown theaters.

Lobby crowd

We can accommodate groups of up to 140*

Raven’s main East Stage, where most of our season productions are played, is one of Chicago’s largest storefront theaters, so we have room for larger groups.  Our West Stage seats 60 people. *Seating capacity is subject to availability and can vary by play.

We’re surprisingly affordable!

For groups of 10 or more, tickets are just $25.00 for general audiences at all performances and $12.00 for student groups on Thursday and Friday evenings. These prices are 40-70% below regular price of $42.00. A 50% deposit is required to reserve your group’s seats, with the balance due three weeks before your performance date. Note these prices are for Raven productions only, and do not apply to productions of visiting companies.
