Tickets on Sale for the SECC's Third Annual "A Night at the Theater"

Thursday, December 21, 2017

Please join the South East Chicago Commission for "A Night at the Theater" for night of fun and fundraising to support Neighborhood Enhancement beautification projects for Hyde Park, Kenwood, Oakland, Washington Park and Woodlawn communities. The night begins at the Smart Museum at 5:30 pm on March 15, 2018.

  • 5:30PM Reception Smart Museum of Art (5550 S Greenwood Ave)
  • 7:30PM Performance at Court Theatre (5535 S Ellis Ave)

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner is be based on the 40-year-old iconic film, but Todd Kreidler’s 2012 stage adaptation is startlingly relevant and thought-provoking for a modern audience. While Court’s production will still be set in 1967 America, there’s no need to approach this piece with an eye for nostalgia, but rather with an eye on the complexity of the conversation about race and racism in today’s America. This production marks the Court debut of acclaimed Chicago director Marti Lyons, who is joined by Associate Director Wardell Julius Clark. Purchase Tickets HERE
