About Alice Rapoport

The Alice Rapoport Center for Education and Engagement is named in honor of Alice Rapoport, a Goodman Trustee and past chair of the theater’s Education Committee who was passionately involved in the theater’s education and outreach efforts from 2000 until her death in 2014. Alice believed in the power of theater to give voice to those unheard, and to transform our world through learning about—and from—each other. “The Alice” provides the Goodman with a unique venue to carry on Alice’s dream of bringing people together, helping students achieve their potential and making Chicago a better place.

“Alice loved nothing more than to see young people exposed to the magic of theater,” said Rapoport’s husband and Chicago civic leader Michael A. Sachs. “She would marvel at the interaction between students and the artists. ‘The Alice’ will provide the Goodman with a unique venue to carry on Alice’s dream: bringing people together, helping students achieve their potential and making Chicago a better place.”
