Resident & Visiting Companies

Through the Resident Theater Program, we aim to be an incubator for existing storefront theatres in Chicago and further each company’s growth and stability.

We are seeking opportunities to collaborate with the resident companies on key projects while maintaining their respective missions and aesthetic identities. During their multi-year residency, Victory Gardens will give each company a physical home to nurture its audience base, develop its respective board, and fully realize the next phases of its own strategic plan.

You can always find Resident Company events highlighted on our performance calendar.

Visiting Company Program

We are also proud to host a number of exciting local, national and international companies for performances throughout the year.
