CONTRIBUTE TO AN EXCITING TRADITION!

For more than four decades Oak Park Festival Theatre has been captivating the audiences of Oak Park, the Chicagoland area and beyond. If you believe, as we do that theatre has a role to play in bringing to life great ideas and universal truths, that it’s important to share with others the tragic honesties and brilliant joys of some of the greatest writings of all time…then we have a role for you to play.

Ticket Revenue pays for only a portion of our productions. We count on theater-lovers like you to keep local, live professional theatre thriving. Our donors are our heroes. Your donations help us to produce quality classics and keep the tradition of theatre under the stars alive in Oak Park.  Thank you!
