We are devoted fans of Chicago storefront theatre who want to support the amazingly talented and dedicated artists that make Chicago theatre so vibrant. The Michael and Mona Heath Fund, along with the Heath Main Stage, is our way of saying thank you for what Chicago theatre has meant to us.
We hope that theatre artists and theatre fans will find something of interest on this site, whether it’s a rundown of projects we support or a riff on what makes theatre so engaging and enriching. We’ll do our best to convey a sense of the excitement we derive from attending live theatre—a unique opportunity to see countless hours of collaborative creativity and hard work coalesce in a transcendent moment.
The Michael and Mona Heath Fund is administered by the Chicago Community Trust, which received the 2017 Civic Leadership Award from the Chicago Humanities Festival. Our passion for theatre was featured in the accompanying video tribute.
