An Important Announcement from Prop Thtr

COVID-19 Statement from Prop Thtr


March 18, 2020

Dear Prop Thtr patrons and participants;   


We, like all in our arts performance community, are hard hit by Covid-19. We are grateful for efforts of our community to self quarantine in order to reduce the spread of this virus.  In keeping with the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Prop Thtr is closed through June 1st.  We will reassess and update as the situation changes.  


All programming produced by Prop Thtr is postponed, including our upcoming productions of our next devised work, Diary of an Erotic Life, and The Chicago Directors Workshop Reading Series. Writers Aloud is hoping to present as scheduled, on a teleconference platform, remotely. Those with interest in joining Writers Aloud can reach out to Karen Fort at  


Rentals and co-producers have been contacted, and they will reach out regarding any modifications to their programming. 


While our facility is closed, we encourage all artists to continue to create art and collaborate virtually. We also encourage you to take the space you need to process - your care and well-being can be the masterpiece that emerges from this period of isolation.  We encourage our patrons to continue to support artists, freelancers, service industry workers, educators, and those impacted.  


Prior to our re-opening, we will be cleaning and preparing for your return. We will find new and innovative ways to express our art and encourage you to share your art with us.  We ask for your support and understanding during this trying time.  


WE WILL BE BACK and we can’t wait to see you all again. 

Until then, thank you.  


The Prop Thtr Board, Staff, and participants.


Stream our last show ...AND I AM NOT AFRAID.
