Summerdale Workshop is based out of the historic Summerdale Community Church building, located at 1700 West Farragut Avenue in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood. (For classes, please enter through the side door on Paulina.)
A hub of Andersonville neighborhood life since 1893, the Summerdale Community Church is now actively building a new relationship with the community by providing rehearsal space for local artists, as well as playgroups for children and their parents/caregivers.
Summerdale Workshop director Kate Hendrickson became familiar with the Summerdale Community Church both as a theatre artist and as a mother attending playgroups. This inclusive, family- and arts-friendly space is a perfect fit for the Summerdale Workshop.
