Help Desmond Set the Scene!

Come for the housewarming... stay for the fireworks!

Desmond Pope invites you to celebrate his new home with a housewarming party—complete with a spectacular view of the Navy Pier fireworks.

As a member of Goodman Theatre’s Scenemakers Board, Desmond asks that in lieu of housewarming gifts, invitees consider a contribution in support of the Goodman’s General Theater Studies (GTS) program.

GTS is an intensive, comprehensive exploration of theater for 14- to 18-year-old students from across the Chicago metro area. The six-week summer program culminates in an entirely original performance created by the class and performed at Goodman Theatre. GTS is entirely free to all participants. Donor support helps make this possible, meeting such needs as printed scripts, stipends for teaching artists, tickets to Goodman shows, and other costs associated with feeding the minds of 80 budding theater artists.
