Spend an evening with Steppenwolf

Steppenwolf Theatre Company's one-of-a-kind events celebrate the work seen on our stages with our acclaimed ensemble of artists. Join us for a chic fundraising event like the Gala, Women in the Arts or Unlocked. Steppenwolf offers unique and memorable opportunities to engage with the theatre and our artists. We hope you will spend an evening with us.


Board of Trustees and our renowned ensemble of artists, Steppenwolf's Gala brings together leaders from the Chicago community for a memorable celebration of the theatre. This signature event raises over $1 million annually - invaluable resources that help us champion new voices and artists on our stages and bring high-quality productions to teens making Steppenwolf a destination for ambitious, thought-provoking theatre.



The Associates’ annual Unlocked benefit supports Steppenwolf's nationally recognized arts education program, Steppenwolf Education. Centered around a production in the Steppenwolf for Young Adults series, the proceeds from this event allow StepEd to continue working with high schools across the Chicago area to deliver world-class theater to nearly 20,000 students, teachers and families each year.

Veterans' Night

The Veterans Night Series was started in 1982 by Steppenwolf Theatre Company founders Jeff Perry, Terry Kinney, and Gary Sinise. This group is given the privilege to be the first audience to see each production, as they are invited to the final dress rehearsal of the plays featured in Steppenwolf’s season.
