Learn with us

For over 30 years, Steppenwolf Education has created world class programming that speaks to the teen identity. As artists, we tell stories that bring attention to an immediate need for youth in our community. Our responsibility as storytellers is to connect youth with the resources and information necessary to affect change in their own lives. Through the dedication of our artists, educators, young adult council members, and community partners, youth find voice to tell their own stories and strengthen their communities in indelible ways. Our productions and programs are specifically geared to teachers, young adults and families. Through our nationally recognized Steppenwolf for Young Adults (SYA) performance series, we present professional productions of established plays, original adaptations of novels and new works for audiences of all ages.

Steppenwolf For Young Adults

The Steppenwolf for Young Adults performance series brings high-quality theater to artistically curious young adults across Chicago through two full-scale shows each year. These shows are performed during the week for students and opened up to the public during weekend matinees.

Professional Leadership Programs

Apprenticeships, internships, and fellowships allow students, graduates, and professionals to experience the inner-workings of a professional theatre from every angle.
