Rat City: An Immersive Musical

Join us each Sunday in June at 4pm for Rat City, an immersive musical about the rats of Chicago. We invite you to dress in your best rat attire to celebrate Ratapalooza. In Rat City, we’re all rats, so rat ears will also be available for purchase – and included in VIP tickets – to help transform you for the event. Come early or stay late to mingle at the bar with some of the coolest rats of Rat City.

What You’ll See: When feral cats under the city’s Cats At Work program crash Ratapalooza and threaten to displace the community, the rats must decide whether to stay or leave. How will things unfold when love and community are on the line?

Ticket Options: 1) General Admission tickets include first-come, first-serve seating; and 2) VIP Tickets include front of theater seating at a table and complementary rat ears.
