Perceptions Theatre works to change the way people, perceive the world around them one show at a time by shining light on underserved communities with theatre that: eliminates prejudice and discrimination by showing cultures in their natural settings and educating on said cultures, lessens neighborhood tensions and that defends human and civil rights, to name a few, while also providing entertainment and being an educational and literary training ground to the Chicagoland area, specifically the South Shore region. We help our consumers start their career from headshots, to making a resume, actor and technical training services, self-taping services, to workshops and casting for our own shows and working with the underserved communities around Chicago by bringing our services to them i.e. schools and other organizations.
