The Inoffensive Theatre Series is Chicago’s go-to for super-fun, affordable, weekend entertainment for everyone. Stage 773 welcomes companies and ensembles to produce fun, smart and imaginative shows that are created for all ages.
The Inoffensive Theatre Series companies are managed through the Box Partnership Program. The mission of our Box Theater is to give opportunities to Chicago artists of all mediums and experience levels. The Box Partnership welcomes companies and ensembles to produce under financial terms which are mutually beneficial to the Box Partner and Stage 773. With no rent exchanged, the primary financial risk is assumed by Stage 773, rather than the Box Partner.
The Inoffensive Theatre Series has included seasoned producing companies such Barrel of Monkeys and Theater Unspeakable, as well as Stage 773’s Bri-Ko, who excited and engaged their audience all the way to winning the 2014 Second City Best of the Fest Award at the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival.
o Shows must be under 90 minutes and will perform approximately once a month at 1:00 pm on Saturdays or Sundays in 2016.
o Please include target age range and any content advisories as part of your cover letter.
To be considered for The Inoffensive Theatre Series, please send a cover letter (detailing the proposed project and how the Box Partnership would advance your ensemble/company's creative mission), company or ensemble profile information and any existing marketing materials (photos, links to website/social media/ video content, etc.) to Stage 773 Director of Creative Programs and Marketing, Amanda Jane Long at Amanda@stage773.com.
