Strawdog Theatre Company has announced the Company has signed a three-year lease for the former Signal Ensemble Theater, 1802 W. Berenice. The 99-seat theater space was also briefly home to Oracle Productions following Signal’s closure. Strawdog will begin producing on Berenice with their 30th Anniversary Season this fall, but it’s available now for rental to other companies.
“We are so excited to have a home with such a rich connection to the Chicago Theatre community,” said Co-Artistic Director Anderson Lawfer. “We have had a great year at the Factory Theater and thank them for being such fantastic hosts and landlords. Strawdog has been looking for a new home since leaving Lakeview and the North Center location offers many opportunities for celebrating our 30th Anniversary and planning our future seasons and popular late night programming.”
Strawdog’s final production of the 2016 – 2017 season will take place at the new Factory Theater in Rogers Park, 1621 W. Howard St. THE NIGHT SEASON, written by Rebecca Lenkiewicz and directed by Elly Green, runs May 11 – June 24.
