Want to see our sure to be fantastic second mainstage production, Tartuffe, for free? We, here at the Box Office, are in need of a few volunteer student ushers for the play’s second week of performances (Feb. 28- Mar. 3) and are offering you the chance to see the play in exchange for a little help.
All you’ll need to do is show up to your designated performance prior to house’s opening wearing a nice polo and a pair of black dress pants. The staff will give you a brief overview of what you’ll be doing before, during, and after the performance (don’t worry, it’s nothing too difficult!) and you’ll be on your way to seeing the second play to ever be showcased in our Newhart Family Theatre.
If you’re interested in giving us a helping hand, please contact the Box Office via email at email@example.com and include which performances you’ll be able to work. Can’t wait to hear from you all!

“Mother and Child” Picasso, 1921
As many avid art lovers know, Pablo Picasso got his start in Chicago when The Art Institute of Chicago was the first museum in the country to display his work.
Celebrating the 100-year relationship between Picasso and this great city, The Art Institute is putting together a collection of over 250 of Picasso’s finest works from the museum’s collection as well as works gathered from private collections around the city.
Come re-live Picasso’s influence on the world of art and on Chicago itself in Regenstein Hall from February 20 through May 12.
