about Pillsbury House & Pillsbury House Theatre:
Run by an umbrella organization with divisions for family services and employment, Pillsbury House offers on-site childcare, summer, and afterschool care, and homework help, computer labs, and mentoring for teens. Parenting classes are offered in English and Spanish, and families can join a food-buying co-op.
The center is also home to an acclaimed but intimate 96-seat multi-cultural theatre. Through the mentor-based Chicago Avenue Project, the Pillsbury House Theatre reaches out to marginalized youth with the collaborative creation of original plays; the Breaking Ice program explores hot-button issues with performances followed by open forum discussions; and bold Mainstage Season productions feature classic and new works.
