“We’re thrilled that Emerald City Theatre provides high-quality drama programming for our students. ECT has consistently designed fun, engaging activities and productions that expose our students to important skills and the joy of the performing arts.”

–Erin Roche, Principal at Prescott Magnet Cluster School


“Our students’ imagination & confidence levels are soaring under the guidance of Emerald City Theatre’s after-school instructors. While our pre-schoolers enjoy teamwork and improvisation games, our older kids are really into developing their own characters and writing their own dialogue. I can’t wait for The Big Show!!”

–Jane Cornett, Resource Coordinator at The Nettelhorst School


“In our after school program, Lycée Français students enjoyed theatrical adventures, fun musical experiences, and amazing travels in faraway lands. It is fun, and a great way to build their self-confidence. Thank you, Emerald City Theatre!”

–Jacques Fournier, Director of Extracurricular Programs at Lycée Français de Chicago
