About Us

APTP is a multiethnic, youth theater ensemble that inspires people to envision a more just and beautiful world. From our home in one of the most ethnically diverse immigrant communities in the country, APTP’s teen ensemble creates original theater based on the life experiences of people whose stories might otherwise go untold: urban teens, immigrants, and working-class Americans. APTP creates a space where less advantaged teenagers engage critically and creatively with the world as artists, thereby embarking on purposeful lives as adventurous dreamers and accomplished achievers; APTP humanizes issues that impact real people but too often get discussed as abstract concepts; APTP enriches the quality of life in the underserved neighborhood of Albany Park and in Chicago.
