The Best Christmas Pageant Ever! Nov 28th - Dec. 20th
When the Herdmans (the nastiest kids in the neighborhood) decide they want to be in this year's Christmas pageant, everyone is sure it will be a disaster. But when the curtain finally goes up, a miracle happens—making it the best ever! This hilarious and heartwarming comedy, filled with singing and music, makes a firm statement about the transformative power of the holiday season—not to mention the transformative power of theatre.
Based on the book by Barbara Robinson.
Audition Workshop Now announcing our very first one-day Audition Workshop!
Ever thought about auditioning for a professional production--either at Provision or another theater in Chicago? Let us help you navigate that process! Led by Education Director, Priscilla Hummel, this workshop will provide present and future students and parents from the Provision Theater Youth Program with the knowledge and tools needed for the next big audition opportunity! We will cover everything about the audition process from A to Z, including preparing and submitting a headshot and resume to proper audition etiquette and much more. Due to the nature of the professional audition process, each young actor must have a parent or caregiver in attendance who intends to be a part of the young actor's future audition experiences. Parents are encouraged to stay for the full duration of the workshop. Come with plenty of questions and be prepared to take notes!

Location: Provision Theater's Studio A

“We can't thank Provision Theater enough for providing (our daughter) with a comfortable and supportive environment and encouraging her amazing growth!”
“Thank you for bringing so much out of
my kids; they both loved it and are still cherishing those
moments they have spent on the stage.”
“Julia LOVED the class... thank you so
much. She had to give a presentation at school last week and
she didn't bat an eye... Her confidence is amazing... Thank
“So pleased with the level of enthusiasm
and friendliness of the staff at this program. I will be passing
along my experience with any mom I know!”
“I am pleased to let you know that Evan
loved theater camp! He especially loved the camp leaders and
learning to sing and dance. He would come home very excited
about practicing the songs and tell me about the fun kids
he met there. It was over too soon for him.”
“Last week, my daughter attended a new
drama camp at Provision Theater. It was a truly transforming
experience for her. After 4 1/2 days of camp, she was on stage,
singing, dancing, reciting her lines.... and more importantly,
gaining the confidence to do all of these things in front
of an audience!”
“I loved that camp was working towards
a show at the end of the week. Most camps have lots of fun
activities, but without as much of a purpose as Provision's
“My daughter Larissa’s experience
with Provision Theater has been wonderful. Larissa found summer
camp with you at Provision Theater to be the ‘best’
she had. I was very satisfied with Larissa’s everyday
progress. She joyfully went there every morning and I found
her so very happy at the point of pick up. She learned how
to take responsibility on a group project and how important
sharing is. It was so amazing to see how the children learned
their parts in a very short period time and how they acted
professionally in front of an audience on the last day of
the camp. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I
made about a summer camp for Larissa.”
“Felix and Coco were so proud of
their involvement in Wizard of Oz. It was wonderful to hear
about the exciting things they did each day. I think the staff
made they feel comfortable as well as motivated…(the
staff) did a phenomenal job of accommodating different skill
levels and balancing the teamwork aspect of the camp. Both
my kids had a purely positive experience. They spoke highly
of the teachers and their fellow campers.”
Provision Theater's Educational Outreach Program is pleased to offer three different productions for the 2013-2014 school year! Each 40-minute show focuses on challenging issues that young people face in their academic environment--such as bullying, prejudice, and peer pressure--and presents practical tools that equip students to overcome these challenges in an appropriate and positive way. A troupe of diverse, professional actors performs these productions at both primary and secondary schools throughout Chicago and also hosts field trips for school groups in Provision's very own state-of-the-art theater!
