Facilities Rentals

Located in the historic Morgan Park-Beverly neighborhood on 111th Street in Chicago, Morgan Park Academy has the perfect space for any event. Our campus is truly "The Hidden Gem of the South Side."

Our theater sits prominently at the head of our 20-acre campus. Nestled behind the theater is our expansive, grassy lawn, Jones Bowl. This versatile space is ideal for large community events like "Music Under the Stars", or intimate tented events like a wedding or anniversary party. Jones Bowl is bordered by four historic buildings, which provide a grand and private backdrop giving your event stately views in all directions. Take a look at just a few of our many options:

  • Arts Center
  • Theater - Seats 425, with a green room and dressing rooms available. Perfect for theater groups, dance or music recitals, and school graduations.

  • Art Gallery - Located across from the theater, it serves as a perfect space for receptions, cocktail parties, and business meetings.
