To help connect arts programming to holidays, heritage months, and special occasions often celebrated by schools and community venues, this calendar highlights touring performances that tie to themes of each month (specific dates apply to September 2018 through June 2019).

To book any touring performance, please fill out our online request form or contact Urban Gateways Performance Programs Associate Claire Meyers at cmeyers@urbangateways.org or 312.445.2743.

PLEASE NOTE: Touring performances can be booked year-round.  This list does NOT indicate the show availability, but is a tool to integrate our performances with your calendar.

Scroll to the bottom of this page to see show recommendations for special events that are not tied to specific months but which we know many schools, libraries, & community venues celebrate – specifically Family Nights/Family Engagement and Reading-Themed Events. For International or Cultural Appreciation Events, check out World Day for Cultural Diversity under May.
