Albany Park Theater Project
Albany Park Theater Project is a multiethnic, youth theater ensemble that inspires people to envision a more just and beautiful world. APTP creates original theater that shares the real-life stories of urban teens, immigrants, and working-class Americans and enriches the cultural vitality and quality of life in the Albany Park neighborhood and Chicago. It does so by engaging youth as thoughtful and imaginative artists, launching teens on purposeful lives as adventurous dreamers and accomplished achievers. APTP's productions and related activity humanize issues that impact real people but that too often get discussed as abstract concepts.
