It’s Friday: arguably the best of all the weekdays there are. Let’s be honest, you don’t have a lot of people sign off emails with “Happy Tuesday!”, but I’ve been known to sign off emails on this special weekday with “Happy Friday!”. So, woohoo. We made it. We’ve also made it to the last blog post about the four wonderful pilot non-profits. (Good transition, eh?)
Greenhouse Theater Company is right in the heart of Lincoln Park. Planted at 2257 N Lincoln (planted. Get it? Greenhouse. Okay, I’ll go on, enough with the cheesy jokes). Greenhouse Theater truly is a community center. It provides spaces for groups to meet, perform, communicate and learn. More importantly, at its core, it is focused on artists: their history, creative energy, drive, unbridled talent, vision. In a sentence, Greenhouse Theater provides and epicenter for diverse artistic points of view and excellent entertainment through area partnerships, annual programming, educational events, resident theater companies, and local affiliations.
Greenhouse Theater strives to support local culture and the arts. And just as any other non-profit organization, it has sporadic as well as consistent needs for a variety of goods and services. Take a look at the Zealous Good wish list (coming soon) to see how you can help.
After all, without places like the Greenhouse Theater, we wouldn’t have performers. Without performers, we wouldn’t have award shows. And without award shows, we wouldn’t have fantastic one liners like Sally Field’s “You like me. You Really Like me.”
