Direct a Play or Musical: Chicago Street Theatre welcomes submissions from directors. While we select our upcoming season each year in late winter, season selection is a year-around process, and we are always excited to have the opportunity to read a new script. We produce a wide variety of plays, including Shakespeare, classics, comedies, cutting-edge drama, family productions, and musicals. We want to hear from you about the scripts that "light your fire!" Visit our Direct at CST page for more information and to submit a proposal.
