From the Page to the Stage

Raise a glass in support of arts education! The Steppenwolf Associates’ second annual Unlocked event offers festive drinks, delicious bites and an exclusive sneak-peek at the process of taking a Steppenwolf for Young Adults season from the page to the stage. Guests will enjoy VIP early access to the Upstairs Theatre and premium tickets for the evening’s performance of The Burials—a poignant and timely new play inspired by the Greek tragedy Antigone.

Proceeds from Unlocked: From the Page to the Stage will support Steppenwolf’s nationally-recognized arts education program, Steppenwolf for Young Adults. Each year, Steppenwolf for Young Adults works with high schools across the Chicago area to deliver world-class theater to nearly 17,000 students, teachers and families. Your support plays a crucial role in keeping this program accessible to those who need it most.
