City Lit Theater

After a 15-year partnership, The Viola Project and City Lit Theater have officially merged as of Fall 2019. Rooted in our shared commitment to using language to bring about social change, the Viola Project has always had a steadfast partner and friend in City Lit Theater. In this merger, City Lit obtains a well-respected educational program with deep relationships throughout Chicagoland, while TVP receives administrative support that will allow us to devote more resources to our programs in Chicago and beyond. 

Our merger with City Lit Theater will allow to reach even more girls with our programming. Thank you for supporting us as we begin this exciting new chapter. As always, every penny received helps us extend and uphold our mission of empowering young women to grow into whomever they want to be.
