“we transform stories into thrilling events”
By uniting the arts of music, drama, dance, and design we transform stories into thrilling, passionate and relevant events, which affect the lives of artists and audiences alike. As the leader in music theatre in Chicago, Porchlight Music Theatre has staged 57 stellar productions including five world premieres and six Chicago premieres - earning growing die-hard audiences and national critical acclaim. Porchlight is known for its bold, edgy and intimate music theatre, offering audiences the drama, the song and the dance “up close” from Chicago and Broadway’s brightest music theatre talent. The theatre was founded in 1994 by former Artistic Director Jill Moore and a close group of artists and friends who aimed to create a company that would feel like home to artists and audiences alike. Porchlight came to symbolize creativity, comfort and community and for 19 years the company has kept that light shining brightly. Under L. Walter Stearns leadership from 1998-2010, the company took on more ambitious works and added its first Equity contracts in 2004. Porchlight’s wildly successful and powerful production of Ragtime in 2006/2007 was a turning point for the theatre, and Porchlight’s work and reputation dramatically grew.
