About this Event

Community Salons are in-person, intimate performance opportunities to present work-in-progress performances, perhaps expanding on the same idea over multiple shows.

What should I perform?

You’re welcome to perform anything under 7 minutes. Even if it’s just a spark of an idea, we encourage you to get up to test it out! Tell a story, sing a song, share a monologue, play an instrument, or do a dance. Who knows, maybe your spark of an idea will grow into a great big bonfire.

Types of performances in the past include: Musicians, singer/songwriters, stand-up, storytelling, musical comedy, short plays, dances, and more!

Who can attend?

Anyone is welcome to sign up to attend or perform. We’re hosting these events for members of the Green Shirt Studio and The Voice Lab communities but you don’t need to be a current or former student to attend or perform. All are welcome! Stick around after the show to mix and mingle with your fellow artists.

Advanced registration is required for anyone in attendance.

Event Hosts

This series is presented in partnership with our friends at The Voice Lab. TVL co-founder Alexandra Plattos Sulack co-hosts this event with Jack Schultz, Artistic Director of Green Shirt Studio.

Donations from this event support the Green Shirt Studio Scholarship Program.

The Green Shirt Studio Scholarship Program helps financially support students seeking training in Levels 1 - 5 of our Meisner Acting Program - one of Chicago’s premiere acting training programs. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated and will allow us to assist as many students as possible.

Green Shirt Scholarships launched in April 2020 to help our community continue studying with us under the economic pressure of COVID-19. As of October 2022 the generous donations from our community have helped over 45 students continue to pursue performing arts training.

Things to Know


Our studio is located at 4001 N Ravenswood Ave. It’s a large industrial building at the corner of Ravenswood and Irving Park.


Free parking is available outside our building’s front door on Ravenswood Ave. If you don’t see parking right out front, keep driving north and you can typically find a spot within a few blocks.


We’re steps away from the Irving Park Bus and Brown Line Station. We also have a Divvy Bike station right outside our front door.

Doors open at:

Door will open 30 minutes before the start time of your event. You’re welcome to get here early but the studio will not be unlocked prior to 30 minutes before the event start time.

How to Enter the Building:

At the callbox outside Dial 303 to be buzzed into the front door. This event takes place in Studio 303-B. Take the stairs or passenger elevator up to the 3rd floor. The elevator is small and from the early 20th century but it works!

If you would rather use the much larger freight elevator, please contact [email protected] in advance so he can make accommodations for you.


Please have your PDF ticket ready at the door for check in.
