Underscore Theatre Company is the Chicago region's only organization dedicated exclusively to producing and developing new musicals. Our work is focused on supporting authors, employing artists, and putting their work in front of audiences. Our shows have gone on to receive publishing and licensing deals, as well as subsequent productions across the country. Join us in making Chicago an exporter, and not just importer, of musical theatre.
Underscore is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all donations are fully tax deductible​. Gifts of any size help make what we do possible. In fact, donations and foundation support make up nearly 40% of our annual budget! 


Sponsors are major underwriters of our shows and events, who choose to make a commitment to a specific endeavor, like our Mainstage series, our Tiny Storefront Concerts, or the Chicago Musical Theatre Festival. We're currently updating our sponsorship package, but for now, click the button below to inquire.
