produced & curated by the curious theatre branch

The Rhinoceros Theater Festival returns to Wicker Park, where it was founded in 1989. Packed with an intriguing roster of 60 works in five different venues, this year's festival promises more weekend shows and better opportunities for new work to find its audience.

To celebrate our 20th year, we continue our relationship with the Prop Thtr and the School of the Art Institute and expand our venues with a solo performance series at the Center Portion Gallery and a new Rhino Music Series at the Viaduct, concluded by the long-awaited reunions of Maestro Subgum & the Whole and the seminal experimental duo Jack the Dog.

$15 or pay what you can (theater)
$12 or pay what you can (music)
$20 for special events

All reservations are handled through the Viaduct Theatre box office at (773) 296-6024.
