About The Passage Theatre
The Passage Theatre is in its second season after being founded by Cory Hardin and Alex Elam. The two met as ensemble members in the 2017 School at the Steppenwolf. Inspired by the same passion for timely, ensemble-based theatre, Hardin and Elam decided to start their own theatre company a month into the program. After adding Grace Bolander and Will Quam to the team, TPT was officially founded.
It is the mission of The Passage Theatre to tell great stories with truth and simplicity. We hope to create community and to inspire our audiences to move through life deliberately.
