Whet your appetite, Chicago! This summer, Albany Park Theater Project serves up an inspiring celebration of food, family and tradition “that is nothing short of delicious” (Chicago Sun-Times).
APTP’s “sublimely gifted youth ensemble” (Chicago Sun-Times) returns to Goodman Theatre with a new production of Feast, a theatrical love letter to Chicago’s diverse food culture and joyful cooking traditions. Featuring heart-warming stories gathered from Chicago’s kitchens, street corners, butchers, bodegas, farmers and fishermen, Feast is a collection of tales celebrating the nourishment and delight that come from good food, passionately prepared.
If you’re going to produce a theatrical production based on interviews with Chicagoans talking about food, Albany Park is as good a place to start as any. Not only is it one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the city—and in the country—it’s also home to the Albany Park Theater Project, an ensemble of teenagers that has a history of producing shows that are honest, funny, and inspirational in the best possible way: after you see them, you want to do something.
The cast of this summer’s Feast includes 5-year APTP veterans giving their final performances before they go off to college and brand-new graduates of our middle-school program making their APTP debut. Meet the 25 youth artists who will inspire you this summer in Feast.
