Since 2005, Mudlark Theater has been challenging people's expectations of what young people can achieve on stage. Our creative process allows children to be their very best, most imaginative, uninhibited selves, and our fresh adaptations are tailored to the individual performers, challenging each child and enabling them to shine. Our training programs—at Mudlark and in the schools—offer kids hands-on theater experiences they won't find anywhere else.

But we can't do it alone. YOU allow Mudlark to think bigger, reach more kids, and rise to artistic challenges. Support MUDLARK and look at what WE can do:

•    Provide $13,000 in unconditional scholarships annually
•    Train over 1,500 children in performing arts
•    Conduct creative writing workshops in 11 schools every year
•    Hold after-school classes in 21 area schools
•    Serve as artists-in-residence in multiple CPS schools
•    Tailor original adaptations to individual performers
•    Produce 10 theatrical productions per season
