Chicago Theatre Retreat Cottage

Beginning in fall 2013, The League of Chicago Theatres will provide a cottage in Michigan Harbor Country (70 miles from Chicago) for a select number of Chicago theatre companies to escape the city for a weekend company retreat. The cottage will provide theatres an ideal environment for relaxation, dedicated work, big-picture conversations, and group companionship. The retreat will encourage company growth through focused reflection and strategic planning for the future.

The beautiful 4 bedroom Michigan cottage is only a mile from Lake Michigan, and includes a large deck with two eating areas and a hot tub, a screened in porch and comfy kitchen, dining room and living room with fireplace. A perfect place to come and think, get creative, and rest. The retreat cottage is generously provided by Chicago theatre artist and educator Susan Padveen.

Any Chicago area theatre company that is a member of the League of Chicago Theatres is eligible to apply for this unique opportunity. A maximum number of 8 people are able to stay at the cottage. Only a couple of companies will be selected, and each will be asked to complete a short report following their stay. To apply please complete and return the attached application no later than July 15, 2013. Contact with any questions or concerns.
