COT for Teens

Chicago Opera Theater for Teens (COT4Teens) allows students to learn and perform the arts in Chicago Public High Schools.  COT collaborates with the City of Chicago’s After School Matters program, which allows the teens to treat the experience as a job and receive a stipend.  Chicago Opera Theater offers this program during school hours and adapts the program to each school's needs. COT's team of teaching artists spend a semester working with students and CPS teachers to produce a showcase, musical, or operetta.  The Chicago Opera Theater for Teens are often seen performing in communities around the city of Chicago.
