Graduation Info

Seniors will get their cap and gown one day before graduation: June 12.   
 
They'll pick up 5 tickets the morning of graduation, June 13. Do not contact the school about more tickets.  We give students all the available tickets.  There are no more tickets to give out.

The graduate--and only the graduate--should show up at the Hilton Chicago at 720 South Michigan (across the street from the theater) at 4 pm on Thursday, June 13.
 
Doors to the theater will open at 4:30 pm. Guests should prepare for the weather if they plan to wait in line. Bring an umbrella if needed for the sun or rain.

All seats are good seats.

If a guest is in a wheelchair or cannot go up stairs, that guest and ONE person should go to the front of the line and tell the ushers. They will be seated on the main floor.

Children 5 and under can sit on someone's lap. They do not need a ticket. 

NO BALLOONS.

Graduates and guests are on their own for parking. Google "Parking in Chicago's South Loop" for options.  The theater is near the Red Line Harrison stop, the Orange Line Library stop, and the 62 Archer bus stop at State and Balbo.

After the ceremony, everyone can meet at the park on 7th and Michigan Avenue.
