• Pegasus Players’s The Frogs

Hull House has long played a vital role in Chicago theater, combining professional artistic endeavor with community initiatives designed to nurture new talent and foster awareness of the arts at the grassroots level. Now the 121-year-old social service agency is teaming up with Pegasus Players, a nonprofit, non-Equity company once cited by the Jeff Committee for “extraordinary success in serving Chicago’s disenfranchised, bringing the arts to the young, the elderly, the disabled, and the disenfranchised.” Pegasus will leave Truman College for the Uptown Center Hull House at Beacon near Wilson next fall, after the current UCHH tenant, Black Ensemble Theater, takes possession of a new $16 million facility going up at 4450 N. Clark.”Pegasus has enjoyed a long-standing programming partnership with Hull House, whose mission of reaching out to the underserved perfectly complements Pegasus’s commitment to youth and community education,” says incoming Pegasus board president David Barr.
