Case Study Companies
Listed in the order in which they joined Moonshot:
Rivendell Theatre Ensemble was founded in 1998. It is dedicated to advancing opportunities for women artists and advancing the lives of women through new theater. Its home is an Edgewater storefront black box and adjacent office/rehearsal space, where it has produced a three play season since it moved in 2012.
The New Coordinates (formerly known as The New Colony) was founded in 2008 and is devoted entirely to new work developed through its own “TNC Process”. In recent years it has been in residence at The Den in Wicker Park. In the year before the pandemic, the company produced two new plays and an “Uncharted Festival.”
Lifeline Theatre, an ensemble founded in 1983, adapts books and other literary works to create “stories that move us beyond the margins of our own lives.” It operates from an adapted electrical power station in Rogers Park where it produces a three play mainstage season, a three play children’s theater series, concert readings and a “Fillet of Solo” festival.
Remy Bumppo Theatre Company, formed in 1996, is an ensemble-driven company committed to producing “the great plays of the past and the important plays of today.” It maintains offices and rehearsal space in Ravenswood and performs at Theater Wit, where it has produced a three play season. As part of a planned transition, Remy Bumppo recently welcomed new Artistic Director Marti Lyons.
UrbanTheater Company, founded in 2005, is deeply rooted in Chicago’s Latine community and the Humboldt Park neighborhood. Its storefront rehearsal/performance/community space is a well known gathering site on El Paseo Boricua. The company's goal is to sustain, preserve, and enrich the Puerto Rican and Humboldt Park experience by archiving stories and producing work that captures the community’s essence on stage. It is inclined toward devised and commissioned work and often tours its productions to other Latine communities. Its season has consisted of a large work, a solo work, and a touring production.
