Our Story

The Greatest Story Never Told began with a belief that all human beings are actors and artistic creators with ideas that are worth sharing and building on. When children and families have the opportunity to experience that their ideas can be accepted and valued, it leads to increased confidence, enhanced artistic vision and fosters an essential connection within a given community.

The Greatest Story Never Told performed its inaugural show in the FIGMENT Chicago Arts Festival in 2013. The next two years garnered extensive critical acclaim with runs at Theater Wit and The iO Theater. In late 2015, the show moved to Wrigleyville and now calls The Newport Theater (formerly Under The Gun Theater) its home.

The Greatest Story Never Told hosts school groups, birthday parties, and conducts workshops and summer camps. We have transformed countless original performances into digital and physical storybooks that currently reside in school libraries, children’s bookshelves and parent’s IPads.
