Introducing: New Wave Theatre Company!

Only the Best

New Wave Theatre Company is officially LIVE!!!!


When I graduated back in 2021, I was so excited to dive head first into the Chicago Theatre community. As I began my professional journey, I was shocked to discover the huge number of theatre artists like myself who couldn’t get any opportunities to practice their craft. I couldn’t wrap my head around how a city known for such great and innovative theatre could be so inaccessible to so many new and hungry artists. An industry full of people stuck in their ways and so resistant to new ideas, mindsets, and voices. It was then that I decided that the “this is the way it has always been” excuse I was hearing from so many folks in leadership was not good enough. So, what do we do when nobody wants to give us the opportunities we deserve? We make our own! And thus was born New Wave Theatre Company!


Our Mission:

New Wave Theatre Company revolutionizes traditional theatre structures by creating equitable opportunity, unifying community, and empowering new and emerging artists in the Chicago area. We provide a safe haven for experimental and innovative theatre by developing professional networks and opportunities, curating accessible programming, and reinvesting in community-sustained resources.


And now you can support and follow us on this journey! Our website and social media are now LIVE!


Thank you to everyone who made this dream a reality!
