Get Out and See Some Theatre for Free, Chicago

Cannot say I've ever partaken in the League of Chicago Theatres' Free Night program, but it's definitely worth signing up for. Speaking of which, sign up starts TODAY, September 9th, so get on this, Chicago. Did I mention it's FREE?


The League of Chicago Theatres announces the fourth annual Free Night of Theater, the nationwide initiative to attract new theater-going audiences, to take place at more than 40 Chicago area theaters throughout October 2011. Visit between September 9 and 23 to enter to win up to five pairs of free tickets to live performances taking place October 1-31, 2011.

At the end of September the tickets will be randomly distributed to participants based on selections and availability. Free tickets are not guaranteed so participants should encourage their friends and family to enter to increase their chances. No purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to enter to win tickets through

“We are thrilled to participate in this audience development initiative for the fourth year with hundreds of theaters across the country,” said Deb Clapp, Executive Director of the League of Chicago Theatres. “We look forward to building on the success of this program and providing thousands of free tickets for new patrons to discover and experience Chicago’s world-class theatre scene.”

Free Night of Theater is an unprecedented audience development initiative, where theaters across the country offer performance tickets to the public absolutely free-of-charge. The goal of the program is to attract new audiences and increase public awareness of theater. Free Night of Theater is a national program, created and supported by Theater Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for the American Theatre. Over the past six years the Free Night of Theater program has introduced more than 250,000 new theatergoers to the thrill of live performance.
