As 2013 gets underway, we at Filament are reflecting on all the incredible gifts that 2012 brought. We are incredibly grateful to you, our audiences and supporters, for making this year our best one yet. With your help, we…
…signed a lease at 4041 N. Milwaukee Ave. in the beautiful Portage Park neighborhood.
…produced The Drawer Boy, which delighted audiences and was hailed by critics as “one of the year’s best.”
…worked with top-tier architects at McBride Kelley Baurer to design our brand-new theatre space.
…formed meaningful relationships with businesses and residents in Chicago’s 45th Ward.
…produced Hank Williams: Lost Highway, which played a sold out, extended run at the Athenaeum Theatre.
…and so much more!
And the best is yet to come! We are in the process of licensing and permitting that will allow us to begin building our theatre. We have begun development on the Six Corners Heritage Project, an original performance created in collaboration with residents of the 45th ward. 2013 will bring Filament to a whole new level, as we go from being a traveling troupe of artists to a full-time theatre operation.
It’s not too late to support our ongoing fundraising efforts, helping us to reach more people, build stronger community ties, and keep producing the great theatre you have come to expect from Filament. Simply click below to give a secure, tax-deductible gift.
