Resident Program

Our Resident Theater Company Program aims to foster the growth of itinerant Chicago theatre companies by providing affordable performance spaces and resources to expand audiences.


Resident companies enjoy sharply reduced rental costs for the venue’s two 190-seat mainstages, expanded marketing support including dedicated subscription management with access to the Greenhouse’s patron database and access to the building’s many amenities including a full-service box office and bar.


The Resident Theater Company Program features a low weekly rental rate, priced at about half of our standard rent. The program also includes a profit sharing agreement, giving The Greenhouse and residents shared incentives to succeed while keeping the rental rate low.
