Red Tape Theatre is known for its fully-immersive scenic design and rockin’ new plays. We seek out talented playwrights and help their dream projects come to life. Anyone who’s seen our critically acclaimed, award winning shows knows that our plays are important. They know that we provide a professional environment for our artists. And they know that we make a difference in our community.

Red Tape Theatre is a 501 c 3, not-for-profit. We keep our ticket prices affordable so that everyone in the community can have access. Unfortunately, that means revenue from ticket sales only accounts for 55% of our operating expenses. Your donation, no matter how big or small, will have a huge impact on us and our artists. This $600.00 represents incurred overages from our amazing set.

By donating, you’re helping to maintain Chicago’s status as the center of new play development in America. Your gift will provide a supporting home for the next generation of great, American playwrights. Please consider donating.
