mudlark proudly presents:
the milk jug fund

YOU allow Mudlark to think bigger, reach more kids, and rise to artistic challenges. Individual giving is the backbone of Mudlark Theater’s ability to fulfill its commitment to giving even more children in our community a chance to develop—socially, emotionally, and academically—through play.  

Inspired by our iconic jug presented after every Mudlark play, this fund will ensure access to meaningful experiences in the performing arts.

Support THE MILK JUG FUND 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
