    Chicago students have experienced a year unlike any other - the 2019 teacher’s strike, the COVID-19 pandemic, and civil unrest and urgent calls for social justice have radically reshaped the ways we live and learn. Utilizing skills learned from our Drama in the School curriculum, students will lift their artistic voices to shine a light on their ever-changing world, create societal change, and tell their own stories. Join us on December 9, when the powerful artistic works created by CPS students in our Drama in the Schools program are performed by professional Chicago actors during a virtual showcase. 

     

    Featuring keynote speaker André De Shields! We're excited to hear his insights as an artist who has embraced his power to make an impact both in his community and the world.

    Andre De Shields holds a Tony Award in front of a red background while wearing a white suit.

    In his career spanning 50+ years, André is a distinguished Grammy, Emmy, and Tony-award winning actor, director and educator, and the 2019 “Triple Crown” winner for his portrayal of Hermes in Hadestown. He has received myriad lifetime achievement awards and can currently be seen on Netflix as the Algebra Tutor in John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch and on The CW as Chubby in Katy Keene.
